Reflecting on Israel's high international standing and recent developments on the diplomatic and military front, Netanyahu told the 92-year-old native of Kaunas, Lithuania, "Dear Misha, this is a moment of public and personal gratitude. I benefited from our mutual friendship, the many years of assistance, the wise advice, the rare wisdom that nothing can take away. You told me: 'Every day I look at the State of Israel with happiness, because the dream has come true.'"

The prime minister concluded, "On my behalf and on behalf of the citizens of Israel - Thank you Misha. Thank you for your contribution to realizing the dream and to many other good and satisfying years. Warm greetings on receiving the prize."
