Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will travel to Russia next week to hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the ongoing conflict in Syria, his office said.

Netanyahu’s office said on Wednesday that the Israeli premier will raise the issue of Russia’s arms deliveries to Syria in his upcoming talks with Putin.

On Tuesday, Putin said his country will continue to supply the Syrian government with military assistance.

Last week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also stressed that Moscow will push ahead with sending military equipment to the Syrian government as well as the humanitarian assistance Damascus needs for its people.

“There were military supplies, they are ongoing and they will continue. They are inevitably accompanied by Russian specialists, who help to adjust the equipment, to train Syrian personnel how to use these weaponry,” Lavrov said.

The top Russian diplomat, however, denied speculations by the United States and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) that Moscow is engaged in a military buildup in the Arab country.
