Peres to Morsi: Peace Between Us is Greatest Victory

In a message to newly-installed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, President Shimon Peres said that he “hoped for continued cooperation with you, based on the peace accords that is our obligation to keep and develop for the benefit of both our nations. Peace has saved the lives of tens of thousands of young people in Egypt and Israel,” Peres wrote adding that “peace is the true victory of both sides."

Morsi was sworn into office on Saturday. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sent a letter of congratulations Morsi, saying that Israel was interested in cooperation with the new Egyptian government, and expressing hope that the peace treaty between the two countries would remain intact.
