Israel’s Foreign Minister, Eli Cohen, said Tuesday he will not meet UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, after he made remarks to the UN Security Council, Anadolu Agency reports.
The UN said it had not been made aware about the cancellation of a meeting between Cohen and Guterres.
“We have yet been officially informed but we have seen the tweet,” the UN chief’s office told Anadolu.
The UN refused to comment on “what has been said in the Council.” it said in a statement.
Israeli Ambassador to the UN, Gilad Erdan, demanded that Guterres resign “immediately”, and said he is “not fit to lead the UN”.
“There is no justification or point in talking to those who show compassion for the most terrible atrocities committed against the citizens of Israel and the Jewish people. There are simply no words,” Erdan wrote on X.
