Peres calls on youth to support Kadima

In a joint press conference with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon held Sunday afternoon, Shimon Peres called for the youth of Israel to support Kadima. Peres said that political activity, and not party activity, was what was important, and said that young people could join Kadima's efforts to move the peace process forward. When pressed by reporters, Peres refused to say anything against the current state of the Labor Party.
