President Shimon Peres on Tuesday night called Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to apologize for the fact that the Russian President's planned state visit to Israel had to be cancelled due to strike action within the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

However even though they will not be seeing each other in Jerusalem, Peres and Medvedev arranged to hold a working meeting when the two attend the World Economic Forum in Davos towards the end of this month.

Peres told Medvedev that there had been great expectations in Israel from his visit, and now there was great disappointment because it had been cancelled.
