New EU ambassador presents credentials to Israeli President

New EU Ambassador to Israel Dimiter Tzantchev presented his credentials to President Isaac Herzog in Jerusalem.

Herzog told Tzantchev — who has previously served in Israel as a representative of his home country, Bulgaria — that the relationship between Israel and the EU is critical.

“I am a true believer in the partnership with the European Union; I think it’s the natural partnership for Israel,” says Herzog, who also stressed the importance of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

According to the president’s office, Tzantchev says that the EU fully supports the recent Abraham Accords normalising relations between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
