President Shimon Peres emphasized the need to reach a diplomatic solution with the Palestinians at the state ceremony at Mount Herzl in Jerusalem marking 18 years since the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin.

"Whoever thinks that the status-quo with the Palestinians can continue is
disillusioned and is liable to fall prey to his disillusion," he said. 

Peres said that Rabin had the "courage to seize the initiative and shape the path of history," adding, "Yitzhak was murdered but the need to make historical decisions remains."

Referring to Yigal Amir, the radical right-wing assassin who killed Rabin Peres said that no one has the authority to pardon him for his deeds.
