Israel ambassador warns UN ‘contaminated’ by antisemitism, says peace with Saudis can ‘transform’ region

Reached for comment by Fox News Digital, the U.N. Secretary General’s office denied it had rolled out a “red carpet” for Iran.

“There is no red carpet at the U.N.,” a spokesperson for U.N. Secretary General António Guterres told Fox News Digital. “Everyone gets the same drab green carpets.”

The spokesperson also said that the Secretary General cannot be “held responsible for the words of a member state,” but argued that Guterres has a strong record of combating antisemitism in both “words and actions.”

“The Secretary-General, in words and actions, has always treated Israel as a member state with same rights and responsibilities as any other,” the spokesperson said. “His voice has been one of the strongest on the global stage condemning antisemitism and the — sadly — growing trend of historical revisionism.”
