President Shimon Peres immediately accepted Pope Francis’ invitation to pray for peace at the Vatican.

“The president welcomes the pope’s initiative and says he appreciates any effort that is being made towards achieving peace between Israel and her neighbors,” a spokesperson for Peres said.

The subject is likely to be raised in discussion when the president and the pope meet on Monday at the president’s residence and a date will be set for the meeting in the Vatican.
