NEW YORK - United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon met with Israeli Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Ehud Barak Friday afternoon.

"They discussed a range of issues, including Lebanon and the situation in Gaza, on which the Secretary-General underscored the importance of a further easing of the closures," a spokesperson from the Secretary General's office said in a written statement.

Additionally,  the Secretary General emphasized that Israel should continue its restraint on settlement activity and should extend it to East Jerusalem, as well as other steps that Ban thought could help efforts to proceed to direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Ban and Barak also had a separate private conversation.
