President Shimon Peres congratulated Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on his decision to restart peace talks.

"You have made a brave and historic decision to return to the negotiating table. Do not listen to the skeptics," Peres said. 

Abbas told Peres that he hoped that there would be progress in the peace process and that the Palestinians "would receive an independent state that would exist side by side with Israel in peace."

The Palestinian leader said to Peres that "we should complete the peace process that we initiated together many years ago," adding, "There is hope; we will continue to build the future and I hope we will reach a good end."
