Shimon Ready to Meet Rouhani

Israeli President Shimon Peres has said he would be prepared to meet his Iranian counterpart Hasan Rohani, even though their two countries consider each other arch-enemies. Asked at an economic forum over a possible meeting, Peres replied: “Why not? I don’t have enemies. It’s not a question of personalities but of policies. The aim is to transform enemies into friends,” said the president, whose role in Israel is symbolic and ceremonial.
Peres also recalled that “there was a time that we did not meet, for example, with (Palestinian leader) Yasser Arafat”, until his Palestine Liberation Organisation recognised Israel. “We must concentrate all our efforts on making sure Iran does not become a nuclear danger for the rest of the world,” he told journalists.
