Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres after his speech to the UN General Assembly and met with the US Ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
The meeting was attended by the Israeli Ambassador to the UN – Gilad Ardan, the head of the National Security Council – Dr. Eyal Hulta, the Prime Minister – Shalom Shlomo, the Military Secretary – General Avi Gil, and the Political Adviser – Shimrit Meir.
At the beginning of the meeting with the participation of UN Ambassador Gilad Ardan, the Prime Minister said to Ambassador Thomas Greenfield: “Madam Ambassador, I want to thank you for the great friendship. I also know that you have good friendships with Ambassador Arden.”
“The reorganization of the United States with international institutions is a good opportunity to bring those institutions into balance with Israel. Many times we feel that these institutions are biased, and sometimes unfair. I think the new spirit between America and Israel can bear fruit and do good things together. I appreciate your friendship. “
At the meeting, the Prime Minister addressed the issue of missing soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, and civilians Avra Mengistu and Hisham a-Sayed, and asked the ambassador to continue raising the issue in various forums, as she has been doing since she met with Leah Goldin.
Prime Minister Bennett also thanked the Ambassador for her work on behalf of the State of Israel at the United Nations, and for her unwavering US support for Israel, and invited her to visit Israel.
