A month after his visit to Washington, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will travel to New York to address the United Nations General Assembly on September 27.

Bennett will speak about issues relating to national and regional security, his office says, which will most likely include a particular focus on the Iran nuclear issue and its support for armed proxy groups.

At the UNGA last year, speeches by world leaders — including then-prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu — were largely conducted via video link due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
