Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the following remarks at his meeting today with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon: "Mr. Secretary, I appreciate the fact that you came here and that you took time to see what we’ve just shown you.

After Raymond's kids moved out to set up their own homes, he decided to downgrade from his landed property and move into a small condominium unit with his wife.
