Deputy Prime Minister Shimon Peres who is visiting Berlin to receive an award for his efforts toward peace met with Hollywood actors Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher.
The meeting was initiated by the two actors who are currently in Germany promoting their new film.
Costner and Kutcher asked Peres about the early days of Israel and its struggles as a young nation. They also wanted to hear about his working side-by-side with David Ben Gurion.
Costner asked Peres about the condition of his heart after so many years of struggle. Peres replied that “my heart is doing just fine and despite all of the difficulties I am optimistic. I can tell you that I will not give up and I will keep fighting for peace. My heart is strong and I will continue working for peace for many years to come.”
The two actors also asked to be briefed about the situation in Lebanon and the Palestinian Authority.
