President Shimon Peres on Monday morning welcomed US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton "as a constant friend" who is "blowing the wind of freedom all over the world."

Peres told Clinton that he appreciated the fact that she came to Israel immediately after Egypt because Egypt is the key country in the Middle East and it depends on Egypt and Israel to continue the march of freedom for the whole of the Middle East.

Peres reiterated what he has frequently said, that peace between Israel and Egypt has saved the lives of thousands of Egyptians and Israelis.
