Israel – Prime Minister Addresses General Debate, 73rd Session

By  | 

Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of the State of Israel, addresses the general debate of the 73rd Session of the General Assembly of the UN (New York, 25 September – 01 October 2018). Speaking at the 73rd gathering of the world leaders this week at the United Nations in New York, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that Israel has discovered ‘Iran’s secret atomic warehouse,” which contained as much as 300 tons of nuclear related equipment and material.” Standing at the podium of the General Assembly Israel’s Prime Minister showed images of alleged nuclear sites in Teheran, Iran, as well as one showing alleged Hezbollah’s “missile convergent sites along Beirut’s international airport” in Lebanon. Netanyahu addressed directly Iran’s government and said “we will continue to act against you in Syria, we will act against you in Lebanon, we will act against you in Iraq, we will act against you wherever and whenever we must act to defend our state and to defend our people.” He also said “I want to use this opportunity to express Israel’s appreciation to President Trump and Ambassador Haley for the unwavering support they provided Israel at the United Nations.” The United States recently pulled out of the UN Human Rights Council, claiming the “bias against Israel” at the Council and stop funding the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees.
