PARIS, November 30 /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at their meeting in Paris held on Monday that Russian and Israeli military had been good at coordinating their actions as part of a new coordination mechanism created in response to the worsening crisis in Syria.
"I would like to note that the mechanism of interaction between our military that was created at your request because of the worsening situation in the region has been functioning quite well," Putin told Netanyahu.
The Israeli prime minister agreed that the Israeli and Russian military had maintained good coordination and interaction. "The tragic events, which we have recently seen, made our coordination and interaction particularly important," Netanyahu said.
He added that more and more countries were joining the battle against global terrorism.
"I do hope that Russia and Israel will be able to find common ground and will hold similar views on global strategic issues. We believe that it is within our power," the Israeli premier said adding that both countries were determined to move on the path of interaction "on Earth and in air."
As he opened his talks with Netanyahu, Putin recalled the prime minister’s visit to Moscow. He added that many events, including dramatic ones, were taking place around the globe. Putin said he would like to congratulate Netanyahu on the forthcoming Hanukkah holiday before before they started their talks.
"It is a good and bright holiday of the victory of light over darkness. Let’s hope the same will also happen in international relations," Putin said noting Moscow was satisfied with development of bilateral relations.
