Jerusalem Post - - NEWS - Greer Fay Cash­man

For­mer pres­i­dent Shi­mon Peres is sched­uled to meet on Mon­day with Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras in the course of a visit to Greece. The two will dis­cuss bi­lat­eral re­la­tions, in­ter­na­tional is­sues that af­fect one or both coun­tries and the state of Greece’s econ­omy. Among the many po­si­tions that Peres held in a long ca­reer of pub­lic ser­vice was that of fi­nance min­is­ter. Is­rael’s el­der states­man is much sought af­ter by vis­it­ing dig­ni­taries, and he also re­ceives many in­vi­ta­tions from prom­i­nent fig­ures in many coun­tries. •
