HELSINKI, July 16./TASS/. Russia is interested in peace in the area of the Golan Heights and security of Israel, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a news conference after summit talks with US President Donald Trump on Monday.
He said that after the defeat of terrorists in the south-west of Syria, the situation in the Golan Heights "must be brought in full compliance with the 1974 disengagement of forces agreement between Syria and Israel," which will make it possible to return calm to this region, restore the ceasefire between the Syrian Arab Republic and Israel and ensure Israel’s security.
"Mister President (Trump) has paid specific attention to this today. I want to confirm that Russia is interested in such development of the events and will adhere exactly to such position," Putin said.
Thus, the first move will be made towards establishing a just and lasting peace on the basis of Resolution 338 of the UN Security Council, the Russian leader added.
