Following the funeral of former president Shimon Peres on Friday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a number of meetings with world leaders at his official residence in Jerusalem.

Among the dignitaries who made their way to Israel for the funeral — including US President Barack Obama, former president Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Charles — Netanyahu met personally on Friday afternoon with French President Francois Hollande, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, President of the Russian Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Brazilian Foreign Minister Jose Serra.

In his talks with the leaders, Netanyahu “noted the great contribution of the late former President Shimon Peres in strengthening and deepening relations with the various countries,” according to a statement issued by his office.

“Regional issues, ways to stabilize regional security and ways to advance peace,” were also discussed, said the PMO, without adding details.
