Russian FM Meets Netanyahu in Jerusalem over Syria, Iran

Monday, 23 July 2018 10:38 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is meeting in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in talks focusing on the Iranian presence in Syria.

The Russian delegation visited Netanyahu's residence Monday evening.

Netanyahu announced earlier in the day that Russian President Vladimir Putin had requested the meeting.

He said he will reiterate Israel's position that it expects Syrian President Bashar Assad and his Iranian-backed allies to honor the 1974 agreement which sets out a demilitarized zone along their shared frontier, and that Israel will continue to act to stop its archenemy Iran from establishing a permanent military presence in Syria.

Hours before the meeting Israel intercepted rockets from the fighting in Syria it believed were heading its way.

Netanyahu and Putin discussed Syria and Iran earlier this month in Moscow.
