The government of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva permanently removed ambassador Frederico Meyer from Tel Aviv and appointed him as the country’s representative at the UN Disarmament Conference. The decision was published, this Wednesday (29), in the Official Gazette of the Union.

The decree does not name a replacement for Meyer, who held the embassy in Tel Aviv until February.

The decision is the strongest gesture by the Lula government against the far-right government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The withdrawal comes amid a series of pressures from the international community, which has been isolating the Zionist coalition at a time when the Israeli army is doubling down and maintaining the land incursion into Rafah, the last refuge for around 1.4 million Palestinians.

In February, President Lula was considered “persona no grata” by the Israeli government after the Brazilian criticized the massacre by the Jewish army in Gaza hospitals. As a reprimand, Tel Aviv set up a diplomatic card for Meyer at the Holocaust Museum.
