IAEC Statement on the Passing of Former President Shimon Peres

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

 

Israel Atomic Energy Commission (IAEC) Director Ze'ev Senir and the commission's employees and retirees mourn the passing of former President, Prime Minister and Defense Minister Shimon Peres. His work is interwoven with the work of the IAEC since its founding.

 

Shimon Peres substantially contributed to the establishment of the Negev Nuclear Research Center and the foundation of Israel's nuclear policy as a significant contribution in ensuring the national strength of the State of Israel. His legacy will accompany the work of the IAEC in the future as well. May his memory be blessed.
