Israeli President Shimon Peres said Sunday he would be prepared to meet his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, even though their two countries consider each other arch-enemies.
Asked at an economic forum over a possible meeting, Peres replied: “Why not? I don’t have enemies. It’s not a question of personalities but of policies.
“The aim is to transform enemies into friends,” said the president, whose role in Israel is symbolic and ceremonial.
