Shakira met with President Peres at one point during her visit, posing for pictures with the Israeli politician onstage at a press conference. At the press conference, Shakira also took part in a joint discussion with the President and fellow entertainer Sarah Silverman, and was presented a necklace by a young Israeli girl as a sort of "thank you" present. The bubbly Shakira was all smiles during the press conference, as she wore a chic black pant suit and white sweater.
During her visit to Jerusalem, the 'Rabiosa' singer also visited a bilingual school, where she greeted a hoard of Israeli and Palestinian students.
