President Reuven (Ruvi) Rivlin today, Sunday 3 February / 28 Shevat, welcomed to Beit HaNasi a delegation of some 30 ambassadors to the United Nations from around the world who are visiting Israel. The delegation is led by Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon, and heads of the American Zionist Movement also participated in the visit.
“The UN is the most important international forum for us and for the world, said the president, noting, “some UN bodies take unfair decisions about Israel. Double standards and discrimination must not detract from the UN’s important work.”
“Change is in your hands,” the president emphasized. “Please ensure that our good bilateral relations are also how you relate to Israel at the UN.”
Israeli ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon: “Thank you, President Reuven Rivlin for talking with us ambassadors about the unique characteristics of the State of Israel and Israeli society. When we face attacks in the international arena, the truth is the best answer.”
