President Shimon Peres and Austrian President Heinz Fischer will lay a wreath for Austria's Holocaust victims on Sunday in Vienna's Judenplatz (Jewish Square). The ceremony will be live-streamed here at 4:55 P.M. Israeli time.

The ceremony is part of Peres' three-day state visit to Austria, during which he will meet with Yukiya Amano, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, at IAEA headquarters in the Austrian capital.

Peres is expected to discuss with Amano the IAEA's role in preventing Iran's attainment of nuclear weapons, the goal being pursued by the world powers in their current talks with the Islamic republic.
