Putin and Netanyahu meet for Syria-focused talks in Moscow

Israel 'not ruling out' eventual ties with Syria's Assad

Netanyahu underlined warm ties between Russian Federation and Israel, emphasizing what he described as their key stabilizing role for the Mideast.

Israel is particularly anxious about the presence of Damascus ally Iran next door in Syria.

In recent days, Israel has noted the serious refugee problem created by the Syrian regime's routing of areas in southern Syria near the border with Jordan. Russian Federation has been a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad in the Syrian civil war and its forces on the ground have managed to turn the tide in Assad's favor in recent years. Its air force has struck scores of targets it describes as Iranian deployments or arms transfers to Lebanon's Iran-backed Hezbollah.

While Russia and Iran have both deployed forces to Syria to help prop up Assad's government, their interests do not always converge.

"We know about your concerns, let's have a thorough talk about them", Putin told Netanyahu before reporters were asked to leave the room.

In their Moscow meeting Netanyahu and Putin were to discuss Syria.

Netanyahu said he planned to discuss Syria, Iran and Israeli security needs with the Russian leader.

Syria and Israel remain in a formal state of war.

Israel has been on high alert as Assad's forces advance on rebels in the vicinity of the Golan Heights, much of which Israel captured from Syria in 1967 and annexed in a move not recognized internationally.

Israel launched a Patriot missile at a drone approaching Israeli territory from Syria, the country's military said on Wednesday. "In that context, we rely on peaceful diplomatic means to resolve any differences and expect both sides to show restraint".
