Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu congratulated Israel Chess Grandmaster Boris Gelfand for his efforts on Wednesday, after his loss to defending champion Viswanathan Anand in a four-game rapid chess tiebreaker in Moscow.

"Yours is a huge achievement," Netanyahu told Gelfand by telephone. "I followed your moves and I was impressed."

"When you were thinking, I thought about what you were thinking. You created great interest among many people about chess thanks to your example. I congratulate you about your personal, and the national, achievement."

Gelfand thanked Netanyahu for the call, and the two agreed to meet upon Gelfand's return to Israel.
