Peres responds to report demanding account of expenses accrued as president

Responding to a report released on Monday by the Movement for Freedom of Information in which it stated that expenses incurred by the president had decreased by NIS 2 million since President Reuven Rivlin came into office a year ago, former President Shimon Peres, who is currently attending an economic conference in Congo, noted that whereas only one foreign president had paid an official visit to Israel over the past year, during the seven months of 2014 in which he was still president, he had hosted receptions and state dinners for the presidents of Sri Lanka, Romania, Peru,  and Guatemala, the Chancellor of Germany and the Pope.
