JNS.org – Israel’s new ambassador to Jordan, Einat Schlein, presented her credentials to Jordan’s King Abdullah II at a ceremony at the Basman Palace in Amman on Monday.

Schlein is the first woman to serve as an Israeli ambassador to an Arab country. She has worked for the Israeli Foreign Ministry for more than two decades. In past roles, she served as head of the international division at the Foreign Ministry’s Diplomatic Research Center and as a Middle Eastern affairs adviser at the Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC.

The Jordan News Agency reported that Abdullah received the credentials of eight new ambassadors to Jordan on Tuesday. In addition to Schlein from Israel, the new ambassadors were from Mexico, Brazil, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, Germany and the United Arab Emirates.
