UK's Corbyn: Peres's legacy 'should be the spur for a renewed drive for peace'

September 28, 2016 13:41

British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn took to social media on Wednesday to mark the passing of former president Shimon Peres.

"Shimon Peres's role in Israel-Palestine negotiations won a Nobel Peace Prize & should be the spur for a renewed drive for peace and justice," read a Twitter post by the Labour leader, who has been critical of Israel's policies and whose party has been involved in a recent anti-Semitism row.
