President Shimon Peres mourned the passing of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher on Monday, calling her "an extraordinary leader, a true friend of Israel and a personal friend of mine."

Peres stated that Thatcher "stood by us in times of crisis and used her influence and power to help us make peace."

The president discussed Thatcher's role in Israeli-Jordanian peace talks in the late 1980s, saying that "she served as a source of knowledge and wisdom to me and to the King of Jordan. We knew we could trust her council and dedication."
