After Syria Talks with Erdogan and Rouhani, Putin will Meet with Netanyahu in Moscow

The Kremlin keeps positioning itself as a key actor in the Middle East. On February 14, President Putin will meet with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts. A week later, he will meet with the Israeli prime minister to discuss the situation in Syria

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on February 21, 2019, the PM announced Tuesday.

“I’ll be going on February 21st again to Russia following my discussions with President Putin in Paris a few months ago and subsequent phone conversations,” Netanyahu said. “It’s very important that we continue to prevent Iran from entrenching in Syria. In many ways, we’ve blocked that advance and we’re committed to continuing blocking it, preventing Iran from creating another front against us, right here opposite the Golan Heights. This is the main subject I will be discussing with President Putin.”

Earlier this week, it was reported that Putin is scheduled to meet with the Iranian President Rouhani and the Turkish President Erdogan in Sochi on February 14 to discuss the situation in Syria.
