  • Israel will not ‘rule out’ ties with Syrian govt – Defence minister

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian Federation on Wednesday that Israel would not seek to topple Syrian regime leader Bashar al Assad but that Moscow, his key ally, should encourage Iranian forces to quit Syria, a senior Israeli official said.

"Our opinion is that Iran needs to leave Syria - that's not new to you", Netanyahu told Putin ahead of their closed door meeting on Wednesday, according to a read-out of his remarks.

Despite no official acknowledgment of most of the attacks in Syria, Netanyahu and other Israeli officials have repeatedly said Israel will not accept any Iranian presence in this northern neighbor.

A senior Republican lawmaker on Thursday warned Israel against striking a deal with Russian Federation on the future of Iranian forces in Syria at the expense of the United States' interests in the country.

The interview will also be transcribed, too, according to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Ohio. The seldom-enforced charge of contempt of Congress can be brought against someone for obstructing investigations.

Israel has grown deeply alarmed by the expanding clout of its arch enemy Iran during the seven-year war in Syria.

Graham seemed to concur with Putin's assessment that the Iranians can't be easily removed at this point, and instead wants to see a strong USA military presence in Syria, too.

"I have set a clear policy that we do not intervene and we have not intervened".

Russian Federation has warned Israel that it would be unrealistic to expect Iran to completely withdraw from Syria, where Tehran has stood by Assad throughout the civil war that has killed more than a half million people and displaced millions more.

Kim also agreed to repatriate remains of United States troops who died during the Korean War six decades ago. Roughly 5,300 USA troops presumed to have been killed in the Korean war are unaccounted for.

Israel has previously reacted furiously to reports that their missiles were intercepted, and has used those interceptions as a pretext for further attacks.

Netanyahu will be meeting Putin as a critical meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders is taking place in Brussels - with Trump expected to bash his allies for not paying enough for their defense - and before the Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki in five days.

However, Netanyahu does not need to travel to the Kremlin to tell Putin Jerusalem's positions.
