President Shimon Peres said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was no longer a rightist, according to an interview with Newsweek published Saturday. "He came from the Right, but he's no longer a rightist. He agreed to a two-state solution and to what no other prime minister ever agreed to - to freeze settlements," Peres was quoted as saying. Peres told Newsweek he may have had "a certain influence" upon the steps that Netanyahu has taken. "I don't expect him to take everything that I say. My advice is simple: We have to make peace. We shouldn't postpone it," the president said.
