At the beginning of the meeting President Peres addressed the changes in the Middle East and the important of strengthening the relations between the countries and said, "Welcome to Israel. Switzerland and Israel have excellent cooperation in many fields including science, research, security and the fight against terrorism. Terror has no policy except terror.

Peace can bring balance and stability back to the Middle East."
Can the President do that?
