Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to fly to Moscow on Thursday for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin where he will seek to further the “enduring relationship” between Israel and Russia, the Prime Minister’s Office said Wednesday.
Axar.az reports, in a statement released ahead of the one-day trip, the PMO said Netanyahu will address developments in Syria and how to combat Iran’s military presence in the war-torn country.
“Prime Minister Netanyahu will express Israel’s vehement opposition to allowing Iranian troops, or satellite groups, on our northern border… under any agreement,” the statement read.
Since its intervention in the Syrian civil war in 2015, Russia has worked closely with Iran in order to help prop up the regime of President Bashar Assad and preserve the two countries’ respective interests in Syria.
