President Enrique Peña Nieto will be attending the funeral of the former Israeli President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Shimon Peres.

Shimon Peres died Tuesday night from a brain hemorrhage after two weeks in an induced coma.

Tuesday night, Peña Nieto lamented the death of Shimon Peres. “Mexico mourns alongside Israel. The memory of Shimon Peres remains in our minds as we remember him as a promoter of peace and as a great national leader,” he said.

“His work towards peace and security in the Middle East were exemplified in his efforts to promote dialogue and reconciliation between Arabs and Jews,” Peña Nieto said.

“Shimon Peres was a great friend to our country,” he said. “The Mexican people and government appreciate the extraordinary qualities of former President Peres and his role as a global citizen.”

Shimon Peres visited Mexico in November of 2013 when he addressed bilateral issues, such as education, culture and commerce. Without a doubt, the work of Shimon Peres was fundamental in creating and reinforcing the relations between the two countries.

Mexico and Israel established formal relations on July 1, 1952.
