Hagel: Active Role for US in the Middle East


President Shim'on Peres held a working meeting, Friday, with Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel of the United States. At the outset of the meeting, Peres thanked the U.S. for its support throughout the years of Israel's existence, said there was no alternative to the two-states solution for Arab-Israeli peace, and called for a front of moderate forces against terror.

Hagel said the U.S. intends to continue to take an active role in what goes on in the Middle East, based on his meetings with area leaders during his current visit.
