President Shimon Peres' visit to South Korea on Monday has been downgraded from an "official state function" to a "work meeting" in the wake of the international blowback from the boarding of the Mavi Marmara off Gaza.

An entourage of senior Israeli businessman and officials, including Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, will still accompany Peres on his trip to meet with their South Korean counterparts.
