President Shimon Peres on Wednesday urged US Secretary of State John Kerry not to allow anything to interrupt his mission for peace.

Kerry met with Peres following his meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Peres told Kerry that he had the deepest respect and appreciation for Kerry's "unmatched energy and devotion" in his bid to resolve "such a complicated situation" which keeps changing all the time, necessitating that Kerry should move faster than the situation. Peres acknowledged that it was not simple because everyone involved has "to take cautious decisions" but with all the complications he was convinced that "none of us have a better alternative to peace."
