Danon elected chairman of UN Legal Committee

NEW YORK – Israel’s representative at the United Nations, Danny Danon, was elected chairman of the UN Legal Committee on Monday, becoming the first Israeli named to the position since Israel joined the international body in 1949.

The UN’s Legal Committee, also called the Sixth Committee, deals with all of the UN’s activities regarding international law, including the status of the additional protocols of the Geneva Conventions, and coordinates its fight against terrorism.

“I am proud to be the first Israeli elected to this position,” Danon said.
