Netanyahu to reveal 'new information' to UN General Assembly

Sept. 23, 2018 10:52 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 24, 2018 3:08 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to attend the United Nations General Assembly next week and give a speech, as well as meet with United States President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

Netanyahu is set to depart for New York on Tuesday to participate in the United Nations confab and is expected to meet with Trump to discuss recent developments and efforts to renew peace talks with Palestinians.

According to Hebrew-language news outlets, Netanyahu’s speech on Thursday is reported to deliver “new information” to the UN General Assembly and will leave “a strong impression on the entire world.”

Sources added that Netanyahu’s speech will be “great, extremely interesting, with new information that will be revealed.”

About 30 countries have requested meetings for their leaders from Netanyahu’s office while in New York, however, most of the requests will be rejected due to limited time and a busy schedule.

Additionally, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ speech at the UN General Assembly is also scheduled for Thursday, shortly before Netanyahu’s.

Reportedly there was no meeting scheduled between Abbas and Trump.
