Israel announced on Tuesday that it was sending its ambassador back to New Zealand, ending a six month diplomatic crisis between the two countries sparked by New Zealand's co-sponsorship of anti-settlement UN Security Council Resolution 2334 in December.
New Zealand co-sponsored the resolution along with Senegal, another country with whom Israel has diplomatic relations, and two countries with which there are no diplomatic ties: Malaysia and Venezuela. Then president Barack Obama enabled the resolution to pass by abstaining on the measure, rather than using the US Security Council veto. Israel decided to send back its envoy to Senegal last week after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Senegal's President Macky Sall in Liberia. It was widely expected that mending the relations with New Zealand would quickly follow.
