Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left the cabinet meeting for a 50-minute telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. This was announced by Netanyahu's own office.
Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu has expressed to Russian President Vladimir Putin his disappointment with some statements made by Russian officials at the UN and other forums against Israel. As Haaretz reports, the comment took place during a 50-minute telephone conversation between the two leaders.
Netanyahu has also strongly criticized relations between Russia and Iran, calling them dangerous. The Israeli prime minister stressed that any country that were to suffer a terrorist attack like the one suffered by Israel on October 7 would act with no less force than Israel.
Netanyahu expressed appreciation for the Russian effort to release an Israeli citizen with Russian citizenship and said Israel would use all means, both political and military, to release all hostages.
According to RIA Novosti, the Russian leader once again emphasized Moscow's position on the creation of an independent Palestinian state that coexists in peace with Israel, which he considers the only possible fair solution to the problem.
