German ambassador Andreas Michaelis will be leaving his post this summer after four years in Israel, to be replaced by German Foreign Ministry political director Clemens von Goetze, according to the German media.
Von Goetze's dossier in Berlin has included the Middle East and the Arab world. He has also served in the past as Berlin's envoy to the EU.
Michaelis, who has kept a very low public profile in Israel, will return to Berlin and head the ministry's political department.
