Knesset Speaker Mickey Levy will meet with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres next week, but tensions are running high between the parties. Channel 12 News reported on Thursday that the Israeli delegation to the UN wanted to place a historical exhibition on the Knesset at the UN headquarters, but the organization demanded that parts concerning Jerusalem be removed.

"A body that speaks of freedom of expression cannot demand censorship of an exhibition," Erdan wrote to Guterres.
