Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres at the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres to request that IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano check the information and inspect the new sites that Netanyahu revealed in his address to the UN General Assembly on Thursday.

Speaking during a meeting with Guterres on Thursday evening, Netanyahu raised the issue of Israel’s captives and MIAs and said that the United Nations must do more to elicit additional international community pressure on Hamas to release them.

The prime minister said the UN must act on the issue, given that it was the UN that mediated the ceasefire within the framework of which Hadar Goldin was abducted.

Netanyahu also underscored the importance of continued operations by UNIFIL and UNDOF as part of the full implementation of their respective mandates, according to the Prime Minister’s Office.
