Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin
met in Paris earlier on Monday, during the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference. Both leaders expressed praise for existing areas of cooperation between Israel and Russia as well as for the continued growth of Russian-Israel relations.
“The events of recent days prove the importance of our coordination, our de-confliction mechanisms, and our attempts to cooperate with each other to prevent unnecessary accidents and tragedies,” said Netanyahu.
“I believe that we have been successful.”
President Putin expressed gratification for the continued cooperation and relationship between Israel and Russia.
“We are satisfied with the progress in the bilateral relations between us,” Putin said to Netanyahu. “The mechanism from your initiative and the ties between our militaries to prevent incidents due to the dramatic developments in the region, have been efficient and there are developments between us in other spheres as well.”
