BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:05 P.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday to discuss a wide-range of topics, including the ongoing conflict in Syria.

The Israeli Premier was heavily concentrated on the Iranian presence in the region and their ongoing efforts in both Syria and Lebanon.

According to Netanyahu, “Iran’s aim is to change the status quo [in the region]. We have the opportunity to create a different reality there [in Syria], a calm reality after years of fighting. Iran is actively trying to agitate the situation on the ground, turn Syria into a military colony and introduce weapons that are very dangerous to Israel and Lebanon.”

Netanyahu claimed that Israel is actively working to stop Iran from spreading its influence around the Levant.

“We are at a watershed moment in Syria. Will Iran base itself in Syria or will this process be halted? I made it clear to Putin that unless this process comes to a halt, we will stop it. In fact, we are already working to curb it,” he said, as quoted the Israel Hayom newspaper.
