Israeli ambassador: Zelensky and Netanyahu to meet in New York during UN General Assembly
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will hold talks with Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu. The meeting will be held on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York.
The Ambassador of Israel to Ukraine Michael Brodsky reported about it. "Netanyahu-Zelensky meeting will be held in the coming days in New York. The leaders of the two countries will take part in a meeting of the UN General Assembly," the message stated.
On September 7, Zelensky had a telephone conversation with Netanyahu. They discussed possible ways for Israel to support Ukraine in opposing Russia's invasion.
In addition, the politicians raised the issue of an increase in the number of refusals to Ukrainian citizens to enter Israel under the visa-free regime between the two states and noted the need to correct this situation.
Earlier, the Ukrainian embassy in Israel said that the current Israeli government had chosen the path of close cooperation with the aggressor country Russia. The diplomatic office emphasized that this was evidenced by several rather controversial events that took place in the first half of 2023, coinciding with the practical absence of Israeli humanitarian aid to Ukraine.
By the way, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Jerusalem will not provide military aid to Ukraine, because it has a "close military border with Russia," and the weapons transferred to Kyiv allegedly can get to Iran and be used against Israel itself.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on Israel to side with our state in the war unleashed by the aggressor country Russia. He recalled that Israel also suffers from the actions of the aggressor.
