 Kremlin spokesman on Putin- Netanyahu talks in Sochi

The talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, held on August 23 in Sochi, proved to be substantial and meaningful, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

While commenting on media reports which said that Putin and Netanyahu had disagreed on Iran’s role in the Syrian crisis, Peskov said that "it would be wrong to assess the meeting that way."

"The nature of the conversation was different," TASS cited him as saying.

According to the Russian presidential spokesman, the conversation was "a continuation of the trust-based dialogue between Russia and Israel." "The talks were particularly meaningful," Peskov added.

Peskov pointed out that Russia and Israel had been "cooperating in the most sensitive fields," including cooperation between general staff and special services. "No one holds emotional conversations her. Interaction continues, the frequency of high-level contacts is the best proof for that," the Kremlin spokesman stressed.

"It was a trust-based exchange of views on the situation in the region, the possible ways to ensure security in the border areas and so on," Peskov added.
