Peres: We Did Not Start This But We're Ready to End It
Israeli President Shimon Peres met with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in Jerusalem Tuesday, after which he gave statements to reporters, during which he appealed to Ban, saying, "We are with you in efforts to bring peace. The problem has nothing to do with the height of the flames but rather who started the fire and who can put an end to it. We have not started this and we are ready to stop a minute after this press conference is over."
