Slovakia's new Ambassador to Israel, Radovan Javorčík, presented his credentials to Israeli President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem on August 4, the press department of the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry told the TASR newswire.

Javorčík is replacing former ambassador Ivo Hlaváček who has been charged with destroying the furnishings of his residency. Hlaváček was recalled from Israel by Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič in late November 2010.

"Some ambassadors are exchanged based on a periodic rotation, some are also withdrawn due to problems that emerge during their service," said Ľuboš Schwarzbacher, the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry's spokesman, at that time.
