President Shimon Peres thanked his Azerbaijani counterpart on Wednesday for the country's success in foiling a terrorist attack aimed at Israeli and Jewish targets in Baku.

Peres, attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, told Ilham Aliyev that Israel saluted his country for "saving lives on your land from a murderous terrorist attack."

Azerbaijan's National Security Ministry said last week in uncovered a cell planning terrorist attacks.  Two Azerbaijanis and an Iranian citizen living in Iran were implicated in the plot. The two Azerbaijanis were arrested.

Aliyev, according to Peres' office, said the plot showed "to what degree we are in a difficult and dangerous neighborhood.  Azerbaijan showed that it is able to defend itself and its citizens regardless of their ethnicity or religion."

Aliyev said Azerbaijan would continue to cooperate with Israel, especially on homeland security issues.
