US media mogul Ted Turner said Thursday that Nobel Prize winner and President Shimon Peres was a "beacon of hope" for Israel. Turner and Nobel Prize winner and former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan accompanied a UN delegation to meet with Peres to discuss peacemaking efforts between Israel and the Palestinians. "It's good to see you again and to see you as president of the country, which you so deserve," Turner said. "You've been a beacon of hope and ray of light through your whole career." Peres said the UN should help to reduce dependence on oil which he said "pollutes the earth and is the major financier of terror."
