President Shimon Peres mourned on Friday the death of Colombian novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who died on Thursday at the age of 87.

"The world has become a poorer place with the passing of the great dreamer who told such beautiful stories to our children and unveiled to us, the grown-ups, the real truth of the world," Peres said of Nobel Laureate whom he had met in Colombia.

Peres noted Garcia Marquez as having advocated for Israeli-Palestinian peace.

"As long as your land is split, my heart is broken and I pray every day for your peace," Garcia Marquez had told the president.
