Netanyahu plans to discuss with Putin Golan Heights, Iran and Syria
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he plans to discuss with Russian President Vladimir Putin Iran’s presence in Syria and the transfer of lethal weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
"We will continue to act with determination against Iran's attempts to open an additional front against us on the Golan Heights, and in Syria we will act against any attempts to transfer lethal weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon," Netanyahu was cited as saying by his press service.
"I will discuss these matters with President Putin when I meet with him soon," TASS cited him as saying,
"I decided with President Putin on important security coordination between the IDF and the Russian military, and of course together we have developed good relations between Russia and Israel," the PM added. "I know that President Putin understands my commitment to the security of Israel and I know that he also understands the importance that I ascribe to the Golan Heights, that we all ascribe to the Golan Heights and to the heritage of Israel."
Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said Putin’s possible meeting with the Israeli prime minister was being looked at but it was too early to speak of a concrete date.
