Twenty years have passed since the most momentous and dramatic event in the annals of Israeli democracy after the signing of the Declaration of Independence took place: the assassination of the Israeli prime minister by a Jewish Israeli for the purpose of altering government policy. Yigal Amir succeeded in his mission – to murder Rabin and put an end to his policies.

As the director-general of the Foreign Ministry under foreign minister Shimon Peres, I experienced firsthand a dramatic improvement in Israel’s international status. Our diplomatic relations with China, India and many other countries around the world strengthened, and our strategic relationship with the US blossomed as it never had before. Israel was invited to regional economic conferences in Casablanca in 1994 and in Amman in 1995, in which heads of the private sector of Israel and the Arab world participated.
