The United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has reportedly offered former Israeli foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, a top job in the world body.
According to a report published by the Israeli daily, Haaretz, the Israeli lawmaker was offered the position of under-secretary-general. The 58-year-old legislator served in the cabinets of Israel’s former prime ministers, Ariel Sharon and Ehud Olmert from 2001 to 2009. Livni has been implicated in war crimes during her tenure as foreign minister due to her involvement in the 2008 Israel war on Gaza. She will become the first Israeli to serve in that position if the offer is accepted. The offer was made over the weekend after the US opposed the designation of former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad as head of the UN mission to Libya.
