[As released by the office of Israeli President Peres]

Dear Mr. President, Dear Friend,

On behalf of the people of Israel and in my name, I would like to express my heartfelt congratulations to you and to the American people on your being elected for a second term. It is a triumph for the American democracy.

Israel and America are bound together by the values and principles that they share, and the ties of friendship that link our two countries and peoples are historical and unbreakable.

Mr. President, I thank you for your unprecedented commitment and support for the security of Israel in your first term. I know that the United States, under your leadership will continue to do so in the future, facing the Iranian nuclear challenge in the way you have outlined, as well as working together to achieve peace with our neighbors.

Mr. President, you represent the future. Your success will be the success of us all.

Please send my personal congratulations to Michelle and the girls.

With high regards and admiration,

Shimon Peres
