President Shimon Peres met with UEFA president Michel Platini on Tuesday at Beit Hanassi in Jerusalem. At the meeting, Platini said he believes soccer can play a role in bringing about peace in the Middle East, as the game promotes "peace, tolerance and friendship." Platini recalled a 2006 meeting with Peres in Seville, Spain, where the two men helped put together a team of Israeli and Palestinian players for an exhibition against a Spanish team. At Tuesday's meeting, the men discussed how soccer can bridge communities around the world.
