Although the 30th anniversary of the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt was treated in a much more low key fashion in Egypt than it was in Israel, President Shimon Peres nonetheless felt the need to call Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to offer his congratulations. Referring to Mubarak as "my dear friend," Peres expressed deep appreciation for Mubarak's leadership and his efforts towards peace and stability in the Middle East. Peres told Mubarak that for many years he had been like a solid rock that could not be moved by swirling waters, and added that every Israeli leader has the most profound respect for him.
