MOSCOW, November 20. /ITAR-TASS/. President Vladimir Putin noted the intrinsic value of Russian-Israeli relations in the economic and humanitarian spheres.

“Russian-Israeli relations have their intrinsic value and I hope we will discuss them today,” he said at a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, November 20.

Putin named a number of areas where the two countries had been successfully cooperating: energy, space, aviation, and nanotechnologies.

The president said the discussion at the talks would also touch upon pressing international issues.

Netanyahu said that relations between the two countries had been “on the rise” in recent years largely owing to Putin and expressed hope that his talks in Moscow would contribute to the maintenance of peace and security in the region and the world.

The Israeli prime minister intends to visit the Jewish museum in Moscow on Thursday, November 21. He recalled that Putin had visited the Soviet war memorial during his latest visit to Israel.
