It is incumbent on the new government regardless of who leads it to continue with the peace process, President Shimon Peres said at the annual Herzliya Conference on Monday.

Peace negotiations with the PLO have been conducted for the past 16 years with significant developments he said, and warned that efforts towards peace should not be allowed to stagnate.

“Peace cannot be postponed for another four years,” Peres declared.

One of the reasons that it was important for Israel to reach an agreement with the Palestinians, Peres cautioned, was that if it didn’t, it might find itself responsible for the rehabilitation, administration, development and social welfare of Gaza.

As far as internal matters were concerned, Peres said, differences between the Jewish majority and the Arab minority must not be allowed to erupt into a full-blown conflict. While it pained him to hear some of the ugly exchanges between Arab MKs and those who spoke against them, it was nonetheless a source of pride to him that the representatives of the Arab minority were free to express their views within the framework of democracy, providing of course that they refrained from incitement, he said.

On the economic front, Peres took the position that necessity is often the mother of invention and that the economic crisis could well provide opportunities for the creation and development of new industries in the areas of clean energy, water, genetics, and interactive education.

It was also important to develop new robotics-based technologies with which to fight terror, said Peres.

At the outset of his address Peres urged the electorate to go out on February 10 and exercise its democratic right to vote. This was the only way to influence the future of the state, he said.
