Yukiya Amano, the Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) came in for high praise on Wednesday from President Shimon Peres when the two sat down for a working meeting.

At the start of the meeting, Peres declared that since Amano had taken over there had been an essential change.  "We feel a greater sense of professionalism, objectivity and fairness."

Peres emphasized the importance of having a person at the helm who all sides regarded as dependable and capable of differentiating between good and evil, and between those forces that were attempting to dupe the international community and those who were not.

He was glad to be able to speak to Amano in a friendly spirit, he said.
