Ron Dermer, an adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Binyjamin Netanyahu, was set to replace Michael Oren as Israel's ambassador to the United States.

The daily Makor Rishon newspaper on Friday reported that Oren requested to end his tenure in the spring of 2013, when he will have completed a four-year term.

Dermer, who immigrated to Israel from Florida in 1998, has served under Netanyahu as senior adviser in the Prime Minister’s Bureau since 2009, where he acted as liaison to the White House, the paper reported.

The Prime Minister’s Bureau and the Prime Minister’s Office declined comment on the matter.
