ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with Shimon Peres, 82, who has been a key figure in Israeli politics for six decades, serving as prime minister twice and holding numerous cabinet posts. In 1994 he shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Yasir Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin. Last week, the Israeli vice prime minister resigned from his membership in the Labor Party. Peres believes that peace cannot be achieved without two conditions: a coalition and the dismantling of settlements. He says that not only do we have peace with Egypt, but it is growing in strength and depth. We have peace with Jordan growing, too. Syria, he adds, is an outsider today in the Middle East.
