TEL AVIV, February 27. /TASS/. Russia and Israel will set up a working group with several other countries to consider the issue of removing all foreign forces from Syria, a high-ranking source in the Israeli government told reporters on Wednesday after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Moscow.
"It was decided to set up a working group with participation of Russia, Israel and several other countries to work on the issue of removing foreign forces from Syria," the source said. He did not provide any additional details and refused to name other countries that will be part of the working group.
Netanyahu's visit to Russia on February 27 was his first after the events of September 17 when Russia's Il-20 was downed near the Syrian coast, with 15 Russian servicemen killed in the incident.
