Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement in response to the news that former Israeli President Shimon Peres passed away:

“Israel and the world have lost a true statesman and an ardent advocate for peace. His hard work and perseverance resulted in the Oslo Peace Accord, for which he later received a Nobel Peace Prize.  One day soon, I pray the world will find the peace that he worked so hard to achieve. Our prayers are with Shimon Peres’ family, Israel and the world.”
