President Shimon Peres was set to arrive in Moscow on Monday evening for an official visit.

Peres is slated to meet with a large representation of the Russian Jewish community at a Salute to Israel event on Wednesday, and plans to join Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin on Thursday in opening the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center.

Following the inauguration of the museum, Putin and Peres are scheduled to sit down to a working meeting in the Kremlin designed primarily strengthen strategic relations between the countries, and to discuss regional matters in the Middle East and North Africa.

Peres is also expected to press the Iran nuclear issue with Putin to an even greater extent than he does with other world leaders.

Peres is due to return to Israel on Friday.
