Parliament pays tribute to Israel's Peres

AAP logoAAP 10/10/2016

Federal parliament has paid tribute to the long and eventful life of former Israeli president Shimon Peres, who died last month.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull related a story of his wife Lucy's recent meeting with Mr Peres, who told her the secret of perpetual youth was to ensure one's list of dreams was always longer than the list of achievements.

"In that sense, this very old man, after such a life of extraordinary achievement and such an eventful one, nonetheless died forever young," Mr Turnbull told parliament on Monday.
