"Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday that relations with Jordan are "back on track", indicating that he will name a new ambassador to Amman in the coming days.
The Zionist entity has not had an ambassador in Jordan since July, when two Jordanians were killed and a Zionist guard was injured at the entity's Amman embassy during an apparent altercation between them, whose details are the subject of disagreement between "Israel" and Jordan. The incident sparked a diplomatic crisis.
Speaking to reporters as he returned to "Israel" following a five-day visit to India, Netanyahu said former ambassador Einat Schlein would be moved to some other post.
"I will decide on the new ambassador soon. I very much appreciate the former ambassador and that will be shown in her next position," he said.
A Jordanian government spokesperson said Thursday evening that he had received from "Israel" an "official memorandum" apologizing for the deaths of the two Jordanians, as well as the killing of a Jordanian judge in a separate incident in 2014.
Shortly afterward, Netanyahu's Office put out a statement announcing that the embassy, which was closed in the wake of July's incident, will reopen.
