Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday (July 11) to yet again complain against Iranian presence in Syria.
“This week I will fly to Moscow for an important meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. We meet from time-to-time in order to ensure security coordination and, of course, to discuss regional development,” Netanyahu said on Sunday.
He further stated that he would emphasize the two “basic principles” of Israeli policy at the meeting:
“First, we will not tolerate the establishment of a military presence by Iran and its proxies anywhere in Syria – not close to the border and far away from it. Second, we will demand that Syria, and the Syrian military, strictly uphold the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement*,” he said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting.
Netanyahu’s one-day trip to Moscow is part of the security coordination between the Zionist entity and Russia over their actions in Syria. “We meet from time to time to ensure security coordination and of course discuss developments in the region,” Netanyahu said.
The last meeting between the two sides took place in Moscow in May.
