Message from His Excellency, Mr. Daniel Zohar Zonshine, Ambassador of the State of Israel to the Republic of the Union of Myanmar
SHALOM and welcome to the official website of the Embassy of Israel in Myanmar.
With a deep sense of commitment, excitement and responsibility I commence my term as the 22nd Israeli ambassador to the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. With a rich common history, accompanied with great hopes, and with many plans for the future, I wish to do my best, along with my staff, to further Israel and Myanmar's long lasting friendly relations. The challenges are vast and not at all simple, but I believe a good basis exists, and both nations are ready to bring the relationship to new heights.
The fascinating era Myanmar is currently in, gives me the feeling I have arrived in the right place at the right time.
It is our duty to prove ourselves, and I intend to work hard to fulfill it. We will be open to your thought and ideas in order to be effective and relevant in our efforts.
