President Shimon Peres addressed US President Barack Obama in a welcome speech on the tarmac  of Ben Gurion Airport on Wednesday  saying  his visit to Israel was “a crown demonstration of the profound relationship between our two nations.” 

Peres emphasized Obama’s commitment to Israel’s security saying that Obama “enabled our security in an extraordinary way, to project strength.” Peres added “Strengthening security is the best way to strengthen peace.”

Perhaps in the hope that Obama will be able to reignite the long-stalled peace process with the Palestinians, Peres said that Israel “Longs to see the end to the conflict with the Palestinians.  To see the Palestinians enjoy freedom and prosperity in their own state.”
