BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:50 A.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that he will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, speaking from Jerusalem on Sunday.

Netanyahu revealed that the aim of the visit would be to discuss matters which he considers to be crucial to Israel’s security.

“We will not tolerate the establishment of a military presence by Iran and its proxies anywhere in Syria – not close to the border and not far away from it,” said Netanyahu.

He added that he would demand that Syria and the Syrian military “strictly uphold the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement.”

Full Transcript:

SOT, Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel (Hebrew): “This week I will fly to Moscow for an important meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. We meet from time-to-time in order to ensure security coordination and, of course, to discuss regional developments. At the meeting I will reiterate the two basic principles of Israel’s policy: First, we will not tolerate the establishment of a military presence by Iran and its proxies anywhere in Syria – not close to the border and not far away from it. Second, we will demand that Syria, and the Syrian military, strictly uphold the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement. Of course, I am in constant contact with the American government. These ties with the two largest powers are very important to Israel’s security at all times, and especially at this time.”

No way. Israel occupation & annexation of the Golan Heights not recognised by International Law. Time to put that in Netanyahu’s head.

“No way” =>Wanna bet? “Israel occupation & annexation of the Golan Heights not recognised by International Law” => And Hezbollah’s armed branch was ordered to disarm by UNSC in 2006… BTW, many Golan’s land were already bought from Ottomans even long before the Balfour declaration, incl. by Lord Rothschild. “Time to put that in Netanyahu’s head” => Syria led 3 wars of aggression and can be lucky not having lost more: was Israel’s my family fief, we’d have pushed about 40km N-E and packed 3000x 155mm Howitzers and 1000 MLRS pointed on Damascus. Same situation as Seoul : in case… Read more »

Beware!

Golan Heights needs to be returned to Syria. Egypt model for Sinai should be implemented including peace treaty with Hezbollah in Lebanon. Until that peace treaty with Hezbollah, Israel Army should stay in Golan, but economic sphere should go to Syria after implementation of peace treaty based on Sinai model.

This is the only way to move forward.
