President Shimon Peres will be happy to end his term as president after 10 years, and will not take the legal steps to allowing an extension to his tenure, he said during an interview with Channel 2 news.

Peres said his service to the state will not end after the end of his presidency in two years.

Speaking affably with Channel 2 news' Yonit Levy, the president said he has reached a point in his career when his ideas and goals are met with great encouragement.

"When I was prime minister, I rarely heard the word 'yes,'" he mused. "Now, I rarely hear the word no."
