Peres Willing to Negotiate with Iran
Tehran Times reports Israel and Iran could sit down and talk to each other despite the bitter enmity that has pushed the two nations to the brink of war, says President Shimon Peres.
Speaking exclusively to the Daily Telegraph in an interview published on Tuesday, adds Tehran Times, Peres said Israel has no natural antipathy towards Iran.
Asked if Iran and Israel could ever have direct negotiations with each other, he replied, “Why not? The citizens of Iran are not our enemies.”
President Peres is considered a global visionary of peace.
