UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned that anti-Semitism remains "alive and well" in today's world and has vowed to combat all forms of racism and bigotry. Al-Ghanim and the United Nations official dissected major issues including the Palestinian cause, the conflict in Syria and terrorism, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in an email to AP that the visit will allow Guterres "to engage directly with Israeli and Palestinian people and their leaders" about "finding a long overdue peaceful resolution to the conflict".

On his first visit to Israel since his appointment in January, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will examine the situation in the Gaza Strip and try to pressure Israel in order to make it lessen restrictions and provide more facilitation for Palestinians in Gaza.

Israel has a tenuous relationship with the United Nations, accusing the Human Rights Committee and other bodies of unfairly singling it out for criticism with regards to the ongoing dispute with Palestine.

He added, "And impartiality means treating all states equally, and I am totally committed to that in my action and in everything I can do for the organization I lead".
