Israel must forge good relations with other countries, primarily the United States so as to guarantee political support in a time of need, President Shimon Peres said on Tuesday at the annual memorial ceremony for deceased presidents and prime ministers.

The ceremony, traditionally held at Beit Hanassi on the first day of the Hebrew Calendar month of Nissan, which is the New Year for Kings, according to ancient Jewish tradition, each year honors the memory and legacy of a different president and a different prime minister through the President's Prize and the Prime Minister's Prize for the best books about the two people being memorialized.
