MOSCOW, March 10. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a meeting on March 9 exchanged opinions on the situation in the Middle East and discussed bilateral cooperation, press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on Friday.
"President supports intensively the dialogue with Prime Minister Netanyahu. Yesterday was another meeting of the kind, and its main objective - to exchange opinions and "synchronize watches" on the situation in the region, which is far from stability. Since all that happens not only close to our borders, but also quite next to Israel, of course, that causes permanent concern of our Israeli counterparts. This is about what the exchange of opinions was," Peskov said, adding the negotiations did not have a target to adopt any decision, "that was exactly the synchronizing of watches." "During the conversation, a major part of the time was devoted to bilateral cooperation, literally, they touched upon the list of issues on the agenda - those are issues of humanitarian cooperation and issues of the trade and economic cooperation, and so forth," the Kremlin’s spokesman added.
The conversation based on a report from Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, who supervises relations between the countries, "and further on the Russian president and the Israeli prime minister discussed in details all the issues."
