President Shimon Peres honored former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger Tuesday evening in a speech before presenting him with a presidential award in Jerusalem.

Noting that Kissinger facilitated Israel's first peace treaty - with Egypt, and through his efforts toward peace with Syria helped create secure borders that have lasted for 40 years and ended the menacing behavior of the USSR toward Israel following the Yom Kippur War, Peres called Kissinger "one of, if not the greatest statesmen" of the past century.

"You are an inspiration for those who seek peace and those who seek understanding between nations and peoples," Peres said.
