The Presidential Conference, which has become an annual event under President Shimon Peres, will not take place this year because of the end of Peres's term and the election of a new president. It is unclear whether the conference will take place in the coming years.
The president's office said that the decision not to hold the conference this year was made with Peres's consent.
