TEL-AVIV, September 30. /TASS/. Israel’s ninth president, Nobel laureate Shimon Peres has been buried in the alley of national leaders at Israel’s memorial cemetery on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. Israeli television was telecasting the ceremony live.
Peres died in a hospital near Tel-Aviv on September 28 after suffering a stroke two weeks before.
He was Israel’s president in 2007-2014. Peres is remembered as a recognized patriarch of Israeli politics and a close associate of Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion.
He was an active participant in the peace process with the Palestinians and an advocate of the Two States for Two Peoples concept. In the first half of the 1990s he contributed tangibly to the conclusion of several agreements with the Palestinians and the signing of a peace treaty with Jordan in 1994.
In the same year Peres, who then held the post of foreign minister, alongside Israeli Prime Minister Yizhaq Rabin and Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat was decorated with the Nobel Peace Award for peace efforts in the Middle East.
In Moscow, officials and diplomats have been coming to the Israeli embassy to pay their last respects to Peres. Passers-by have been laying flowers at the embassy’s walls and leaving notes in the book of condolences.
