Noam Schalit, father of Gilad Schalit, was set to travel Sunday night to New York to meet with UN officials.

Schalit was to meet with representatives of member countries and UN officials before the General Assembly session on September 20 in which Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will seek UN recognition of a Palestinian state.

The Schalit family recently sent a letter to the United Nations arguing that the continued incarceration of Gilad as a hostage for the explicit use of blackmailing and bargaining for his release, in a territory petitioning for statehood recognition from the United Nations, is a flagrant violation of international law.
