Presiden Israel lawat pejabat Facebook

SAN FRANCISCO, Amerika Syarikat (AS) - Presiden Israel, Shimon Peres melawat ibu pejabat Facebook di Menlo Park, California Utara kelmarin.

Perez turut memuji laman jaringan sosial berkenaan sebagai mekanisme alternatif untuk orang ramai selepas beberapa usaha damai Asia Barat sebelum ini menemui kegagalan.

Pemimpin berusia 88 tahun itu bertemu Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg dan melancarkan halaman peribadinya di laman web berkenaan.

Ia bertujuan untuk mewujudkan dialog dengan penduduk Arab di negara-negara yang tidak memiliki hubungan diplomatik dengan Israel.

Dalam temu bual bersama Ketua Pegawai Operasi Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg yang disiarkan secara langsung di laman web firma berkenaan, Peres berulang kali memuji Facebook sebagai alat ke arah perubahan positif dengan membolehkan penduduk di negara-negara berbeza saling berkomunikasi.

"Soal keamanan bukan lagi urusan pemerintah tetapi ia kini urusan rakyat," kata Peres.

Menjawab soalan Sandberg mengenai program nuklear Iran, Peres berkata, beliau tidak bermusuh dengan rakyat Iran.

Namun, pada masa yang sama Peres mengecam pentadbiran Iran kerana merancang membina senjata nuklear.

Presiden AS, Barack Obama menjadi ketua negara pertama yang melawat ibu pejabat Facebook apabila beliau mengadakan pertemuan dengan Zuckerberg pada tahun lalu. - AP

Israeli President Peres visits Facebook HQ in Menlo Park

Israeli President Shimon Peres on Tuesday visited Facebook's headquarters in Menlo Park, where he blasted the Iranian government and said the social networking site is a way for people to bypass failed efforts of governments to seek peace. 
  The 88-year-old leader was scheduled to meet with the company's chief executive officer, Mark Zuckerberg, and launch his official personal page on the site aimed at creating a dialogue with Arabs who live in countries that do not have diplomatic ties with Israel.

In an interview with Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg streamed live on the company's website, Peres repeatedly praised Facebook as a tool for positive social change by enabling citizens of different countries to connect.

"The matter of peace is no longer the business of governments but the business of people," Peres said. "Today the people are governing the governments. And when they begin to talk to each other, they are surprised: We should be friends."

In response to a question from Sandberg about Iran's nuclear program, Peres said he had nothing against the Iranian people. At the same time, he condemned the Iranian government as a seat of "moral corruption."

"They want to have nuclear weapon. The combination of viciousness and nuclear weapons is a real catastrophe, a real danger," he said.

Iran denies it is seeking a weapon and insists its nuclear program is for energy production and other peaceful purposes.

Peres' comments came as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with President Barack Obama this week. The two remain at odds over the possibility of an Israeli military strike against Iran. Obama called for more time to let diplomacy work, while Netanyahu refused to rule out an attack in the near future.

 In Israel, the presidency is an elected office but serves a mostly ceremonial role. The prime minister acts as the country's primary leader. Peres served as prime minister twice, once in the 1980s and once in the 1990s.

Peres' Facebook visit was part of a four-day swing through Silicon Valley to promote Israel's tech industry. Touring the region's marquee tech companies has become a rite of passage for politicians and celebrities passing through Northern California.

His California itinerary includes meetings with leading venture capitalists and Google co-founder Sergey Brin.

Obama became the first sitting head of state to visit Facebook's headquarters when he came last year for a town hall meeting and interview led by Zuckerberg.
