ARIS, February 5. /TASS/. Israel does not want confrontation with Russia and incidents between military aircraft of both countries in the Syrian airspace, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview with the France’s LCI TV Channel.
"Our airplanes are flying close to each other in the sky over Syria. So far we have managed to avoid any confrontation," Netanyahu said. "We do not want military confrontation with Russia. I do not think it will serve anyone’s purpose," he stressed.
The compromise satisfactory for Israel and not violating Moscow’s interests was found in relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Netanyahu said.
"We found the compromise in our relations with Putin that serves interests of Israel and does not violate national interests of Russia," the Israeli’s Prime Minister said. "Thus, we decided that each of us is acting on his side," he added.
