DM Lieberman: Everything Must Be Done To Avoid A Third Lebanon War

Netanyahu will meet in Russian Federation with President Vladimir Putin and discuss Iran's influence. Israel has always been lobbying the United States and Russian Federation, requesting them to avoid an Iranian foothold in Syria in the context of a possible peace agreement.

"I made clear to Putin that we will stop it if it doesn't stop by itself". Tel Aviv firmly opposes such actions and will act on its own if the worldwide community won't handle the issue, he warned Putin.

The Israeli prime minister said he also spoke with Putin about the "threat of Iran manufacturing precision weapons in Lebanon".

He warned that due to the failings of its authorities, Lebanon has turned into one large missile factory.

A Russian daily reported that the two world leaders will be discussing a host of agendas revolving around the Russia-Israel relations in different spheres, the Middle East concerns, and the Syrian situation. Their last meeting was held at the end of August, 2017. "I can't speak for the Russian position, but they understood that if certain changes weren't made, it is very possible that the U.S. would make good on its threat" to withdraw from the deal.

He said Israel is "prepared for all the scenarios".

Netanyahu said he and Putin talked about various "scenarios of escalation" in the region, and how they can be dealt with.

The visit has been confirmed by the Prime Minister's Office.

The meeting took place at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow, where the two leaders took part in the opening of an exhibit to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day call called "Sobibor: Victorious over Death", which is dedicated to the 1943 uprising in the Nazi extermination camp.

Speaking in a video statement after his talks with Putin, Netanyahu hailed what he described as a "good and in-depth" meeting. "But it's a fact that Netanyahu has managed to achieve that, time after time, in these meetings". "That is our mission also today - that is what I want to talk to you about: our joint efforts to advance security and stability in our regions, and of course on the mutual cooperation between us, between Russian Federation and Israel".
