President Shimon Peres on Monday said that US President Barack Obama was right to shift his support from corrupt rulers to hungry and thirsty peoples.

At a meeting of the Treasury Ministry's Budget Division, the president said that Israel must deal with what is happening around it. "We cannot be an island of wealth in a sea of poverty and fighting," he added.

Peres said that by attracting investment from global companies, Israel could aid the Middle East.
