President Shimon Peres spoke with Romanian President Traian Basescu Thursday by phone to thank him for the assistance and warm attitude toward Israel shown by Romania after the helicopter crash which killed six IAF servicemen and one Romanian military observer in central Romania.

Peres thanked Basescu "from the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of the State of Israel," and expressed his condolences over the Romanian observer killed in the accident.

Basescu had written letter to Shimon Peres after the incident, saying, "Please convey to the bereaving families my sincerest condolences, together with my sentiments of deep compassion for this tragedy.
