Peres Praises Oslo Architect 'Peace Fighter'

President Shimon Peres eulogized Ron Pundak on Friday, after the 1993 Oslo Accords architect passed away at the age of 59 earlier in the day, following a long bout with cancer.

Pundak was a "peace fighter to his last breath," according to Peres, who "devoted his entire adult life in efforts to achieve peace between us and our neighbors. He was ready to do anything for peace. In terms of peace he knew no compromise...peace burned in him like an eternal flame."
