TEL AVIV, March 9. /TASS/. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is convinced the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, scheduled for Thursday in Moscow, is very important for the security of his country.
"This is a very important meeting for the security of Israel," Netanyahu said cited by his office.
The prime minister’s office said that Netanyahu was planning to discuss "the ongoing link between Israel and Russia in order to prevent friction in Syria." Along with this, he will "express Israel's strong opposition to the presence of Iranian forces, and those of its proxies, on our northern border and in the Mediterranean Sea in the context of the talks on a settlement of any kind."
Besides, Netanyahu will stick to his stance on Golan Heights, "that the Golan Heights is not part of the discussion on any outline."
"Victory over the terrorism of Daesh cannot lead to an upsurge in terrorism by Iran and its proxies. We will not exchange terrorism for terrorism," Netanyahu’s office quoted him as saying.
During his visit to Moscow Netanyahu will be accompanied by Minister Zeev Elkin, Acting National Security Advisor and Head of the National Security Council Jacob Nagel, chief of staff Yoav Horowitz, GOC Intelligence Head Herzl Halevy and his Military Secretary Eliezer Toledano, the office said.
