Peres cites 'window of opportunity' at end of Cairo trip

President Shimon Peres said Tuesday afternoon that his earlier meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo was "a meeting at an unusual time - there is a feeling that a window of opportunity has opened." Talking to reporters at the end of his visit to the Egyptian capital, Peres said Mubarak was a key player in the Middle East. "Mubarak doesn't want to leave a messed up Middle East behind him," he added.
