Peres thanked the US for helping Israel "overcome small size in tough surroundings to become strong enough to take risks for peace."

"On behalf of all the people of Israel, I want to thank my friend and Israel’s friend, President Barack Obama, for standing by our side with an unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security," he added.
