Israeli Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev (Likud) called on the Israeli government to make a decision regarding supervising the activities in the United Nations headquarters in Jerusalem.

"After the Six Day War, the government gave a clear mandate to the United Nations and allowed them to use the Armon Hanatziv campus for one thing only: To supervise the ceasefire," Regev said.

"The time has come for the United Nations to understand that they are not immune and are not above the law.

"The Israeli government must take responsibility for what happens in its territory, and must make it clear to that this building is rented out, even if only for one NIS per year, for purposes which are decided by the Israeli government."

UNESCO recently passed a resolution denying Israel's rights to Jerusalem and condemning Israel's activities in its capital city.
