"As a president, I have many duties. But this is not a duty, but a pleasure; let's have a conversation, one on one, on any subject. Seriously or with a wink in your eye," Peres says in the video. Viewers are invited to select a topic from four categories: Childhood, Tomorrow, Men and Women and You.


In the video, Peres talks about everything, including the day he fell in love with his wife, Sonia.


According to a statement issued by the conference, Peres is the first leader to hold an interactive conversation with web users from various countries, using unique Israeli technology.
