MOSCOW, June 7. /TASS/. Intensive contacts between Russia and Israel are the basis for building up the bilateral cooperation, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday when asked what caused such frequent meetings between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"This creates a very positive basis for new ideas regarding the bilateral cooperation," the Kremlin spokesman said. "This includes agriculture, high-tech solutions and many other areas."
According to Peskov, the atmosphere of confidence reigns in the bilateral relations between the two countries. "This is a very constructive and trusting manner of communication between the president and the prime minister," he said.
Peskov added that Netanyahu’s current visit was planned well in advance, whereas the two politicians’ previous meeting was unscheduled and stemmed from the current situation in the region. He recalled that it was with Israel that military contacts took least time possible to establish.
"Relying on this atmosphere of trust, they were able to agree that the two countries’ general staffs will launch the information exchange mechanism," Peskov said.
The Kremlin spokesman went on to say that Russia and Israel take into account each other’s concerns and express their positions quite constructively.
He noted though that "no one is talking about competition with someone in terms of contact intensity."
Netanyahu arrived in Moscow on Monday, he will meet with Putin on Tuesday.
