Putin, Netanyahu discuss Middle East

  • Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gestures as he speaks the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos Switzerland

Israel has always been lobbying the United States and Russian Federation, requesting them to avoid an Iranian foothold in Syria in the context of a possible peace agreement.

"I made clear to Putin that we will stop it if it doesn't stop by itself". Tel Aviv firmly opposes such actions and will act on its own if the global community won't handle the issue, he warned Putin.

A day earlier, IDF Brig. Following the meeting Netanyahu had confirmed that Israel's security is benefitted by the Putin's approach.

The Israeli prime minister said on January 28 that he planned to discuss "various regional developments, enhanced security coordination between the [Israeli] and the Russian military forces in Syria, and a series of issues that are important - very important - for Israel's security". Both men, he said, "understand" Israel's positions.

Israeli Defense Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Ronen Manelis said that Lebanon's "Hezbollah" party was imposing its power on political leaderships in Lebanon, adding that this threatens Israel and could lead to a devastating war with the neighboring country. "We will use this opportunity to talk about our bilateral relations and to discuss the situation in the region".

Elkin also told Ynet that the conversation focused on Iran's efforts to establish a military foothold in Syria, and their attempts to establish missile factories in Lebanon.

Israel's Permanent Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, said there are 82,000 fighters under Iran's authority in Syria.

Netanyahu was directing his cautionary statement to the one person who is perhaps most able to influence Iran on the subject, as their joint interest in propping up the Assad regime in Syria has made allies of Moscow and Tehran.

The visit has been confirmed by the Prime Minister's Office.

The pair watched a presentation of the upcoming film "Sobibor" about the only successful uprising in a Nazi death camp and visited the Museum's exhibition. The meeting is expected to be held at the JMTC (Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre).

Netanyahu said the "main lesson of the rise of the Nazis and, afterward, their defeat, is that one needs to take a strong and timely stand against murderous ideologies". "That is our mission today as well".
