Germany is committed to the continued existence of the State of Israel in peace and security, German President Christian Wulff, said on Sunday at reception hosted in his honor by President Shimon Peres.
Wulff 51, arrived in Israel on Saturday on his first official visit to the region since taking office just under half a year ago.
He is accompanied here by his 17-year-old daughter Annalena and other German teenagers in a demonstration of Germany's commitment to teach its youth about the evils of the Holocaust, and the need to do everything possible to compensate the Jewish people.
Wulff referred to these young people in his address, when speaking of Germany's commitment. This is a message which must be passed on to future generations, he said.
As for Israel living in peace and security, Wulff declared that this can only be guaranteed through a two-state solution in which Israel and the Palestinians will be two nations living side by side at the conclusion of a just and comprehensive agreement.
