40 UN ambassadors visit Israel as nation celebrates 70th anniversary

JERUSALEM – Forty ambassadors to the United Nations visited Israel as the nation celebrated its 70th Independence Day. Israel’s ambassador to the U.N., Danny Danon, led the five-day visit. No ambassadors from Arab countries participated.

The visitors included ambassadors from Serbia, Jamaica, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Hungary, Liberia, Ukraine, Uganda, Slovenia, Malta, Mozambique and Ethiopia. Not all of the countries represented vote with Israel in the U.N. Security Council.

Fifteen of the ambassadors first joined Danon in Poland last week for the March of the Living, which was held on Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day. It was the first time that U.N. ambassadors had joined in the March of the Living.

The visit is the largest to come to Israel so far. There were nine participants in 2016 and 14 in 2017.
