Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed their countries’ coordination in Syria on Monday. The statement from Netanyahu’s office said they discussed “regional issues and the continued coordination between Israel and Russia facing security developments in the region.” The leaders speak often, in light of Israel’s policy to prevent Iran from establishing a foothold close to its northern border and to stop the transfer of weapons to Hezbollah. Israel forewarns Moscow of these actions, as Russia has a large military presence in Syria. Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi also spoke with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov. The conversation focused on “preventing Iran from attaining nuclear weapons and consolidating its power in the region,” Ashkenazi said in a tweet.
