Avigdor Lieberman will become the first Israel foreign minister to address the United Nations General Assembly.

Lieberman will travel to New York at the end of the month to address the international body, according to Israel Hayom.

He will be addressing the General Assembly instead of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu due to the latter's commitments to the relaunched direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

Lieberman reportedly canceled a scheduled trip to Washington, including a meeting with US Vice President Joe Biden, in order to meet Wednesday with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Jerusalem.
