Peres: Great hopes for Arab revolutions

President Shimon Peres says popular revolutions in the Middle East could give his country better neighbors, if Arab states become more democratic and prosperous.


He added that changes in Syria, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and elsewhere carry "great hopes and also great dilemmas." But Peres told reporters in Geneva on Monday that Israel is watching protests in Syria particularly closely. He noted that weeklong series of anti-government demonstrations that have rocked the country "changes the status quo in Syria." (AP)
