Peres congratulates Kerry, urges: Mustn't miss peace chance

President Shimon Peres congratulated US State Secretary John Kerry upon his scheduled fifth visit to Israel on Thursday, set to restart the Israeli-Palestinian talks. "The chance to renew the peace process is on the line again and we mustn't miss it," Peres said in the State memorial service for Theodor Herzl in Jerusalem.


Peres added: "A bi-national state contradicts Herzl's vision and endangers Israel's democratic and Jewish character." (Noam Dvir)
