Putin Holds Telephone Conversation With Netanyahu, Discuss Syria


Russia’s President Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu at the Israeli side’s initiative, the Kremlin said.

According to the Kremlin, the two leaders discussed issues dealing with Syria, including in the context of recent missile strikes by the Israeli Air Force at the T4 airbase in Homs province.

Vladimir Putin emphasised the importance of respecting Syria’s sovereignty and called for refraining from any steps that could further destabilise the situation in the country and threaten its security.

In addition, and in light of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is observed on April 12, both leaders unambiguously declared again that attempts to distort history and revise the results of World War Two are unacceptable. In this context, Benjamin Netanyahu pointed out that Israel will officially celebrate Victory Day on May 9 this year for the first time, the Kremlin said.

The sides agreed to continue contacts.
