The workers' union of the Foreign Ministry decided on Wednesday to end their sanctions that have caused problems for Israel internationally following a meeting that took place between Foreign Ministry, Treasury, and Histadrut officials.

The union said in a statement on Wednesday that the Finance Ministry had presented a framework for upgrading Foreign Ministry workers' wages and a timetable for reaching an agreement.

Ministry workers have refused to facilitate Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's visits to the United States and Greece and have caused embarrassment by leaving visiting foreign dignitaries at Ben-Gurion airport and at a restaurant in Abu Ghosh.
