Israel congratulates Musharraf on re-election

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) quoted Peres as saying that although Islamabad and Jerusalem do not have formal ties, Musharraf, a close US ally in the war on terrorism, has voiced interest in Israeli-Arab peace efforts.

“You have shown responsibility and strength in preventing the spread of violence and terrorism on many occasions, and I carry in my heart your support for peace in the Middle East,” Peres wrote.

“Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration,” he added.

President Peres is probably ahead of all world leaders in felicitating Musharraf. Even the US has withheld its formal congratulatory message until the court has validated Musharraf’s still unconfirmed re-election victory. (ANI)
