Shimon Peres, the President of Israel, will be coming to the United States in early March for a number of meetings with U.S. officials.

The Algemeiner has learned that Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, will be meeting with Peres as well, to set up the Nobel laureate’s very own English language Facebook page.

The initiative is aimed at facilitating conversation with younger Arabs across the Middle East, who do not have many other channels to communicate with the Israeli people and their leaders.

“Launching a Facebook page for the president is an extremely important move to strengthening the ties between the president and the broad public throughout the globe and it will form a platform to promote President Peres’ vision of peace while offering positive exposure for the State of Israel,” said a spokesman for Peres.
