WASHINGTON – Congressman Vern Buchanan released the following statement on the passing of former Israeli President Shimon Peres: 

“I had the honor of meeting Shimon Peres in Israel in 2007 and was impressed by his inspirational leadership. Peres’ relentless work to bring peace to the Middle East made him an admired figure across the world and earned him the Nobel Peace Prize. Today, the United States mourns the loss of the last of Israel’s founding leaders.”
