New Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations said it appears the scope of the planned Gaza flotilla is shrinking and that he hopes it will not sail at all, in an interview with Israel Radio Thursday morning.

Prosor added that there is a consensus among international leaders against the flotilla. The ambassador said he hopes that additional key countries will urge their citizens not to participate in the flotilla. The United States and Greece in recent days issued warnings to their citizens against attempting to break Israel's naval blockade on the Strip.

In a message to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Prosor wrote on Wednesday that the flotilla is an act of provocation and its consequences could be dangerous.
