London MEP Sarah Ludford meets Israeli President Shimon Peres


Commenting on her recent meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres at the European Parliament organised by the European Friends of Israel, LibDem European justice & human rights spokeswoman and vice-president of LibDem Friends of Israel Baroness Sarah Ludford MEP said:
“I was delighted to meet Israeli President Shimon Peres whom I have long admired. I was particularly impressed by his observation that 'Pessimists and optimists die the same way but live differently and I prefer to live as an optimist' - a telling indication of his wisdom!”
“I was also pleased that President Peres not only reiterated his commitment to peace with a 2-state solution but also emphasised his belief that Palestinian Authority President Abu Mazen shares such a commitment. President Peres also recognised that the EU had a lot to contribute to this continuing process not least in its support for economic development in the Middle East.”
