SOT, Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel (Hebrew): "This week I will fly to Moscow for an important meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. We meet from time-to-time in order to ensure security coordination and, of course, to discuss regional developments. At the meeting I will reiterate the two basic principles of Israel's policy: First, we will not tolerate the establishment of a military presence by Iran and its proxies anywhere in Syria – not close to the border and not far away from it. Second, we will demand that Syria, and the Syrian military, strictly uphold the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement. Of course, I am in constant contact with the American government. These ties with the two largest powers are very important to Israel's security at all times, and especially at this time."
