Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the weekly cabinet meeting that a replacement for Israel's ambassador to Washington Michael Oren would be named "in the coming days."

This was Netanyahu's first public comment on the "ambassador sweepstakes" that for months have been swirling around the appointment of a new ambassador to Washington.

Netanyahu praised Oren during the cabinet meeting as an "exemplary" and "excellent" ambassador who has done "very, very important work." Oren announced over the weekend that he would be leaving the post in the Fall after serving in that post for four years.
