Russia, Israel and the US discuss situation in Syria and Iran: Israeli diplomat

QAMISHLI, Syria (North Press) – Israel agreed with Russia and the US to hold a meeting at the level of heads of security councils to discuss the situation in Syria and Iran, the Israeli ambassador to Russia, Alexander Ben-Zvi, said on Saturday. 

The Russian Sputnik news agency quoted Ben-Zvi as saying that his country had agreed with Russia and the United States to hold a meeting among security officials, to discuss the situation in Syria and Iran.     

The date and place may be determined after the negotiations between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett in Sochi on October 22, he added.

“So far, it is only a suggestion, the date or place has not yet been determined. From our side, we are ready to host delegations, but this has not yet been decided,” Ben-Zvi noted.  

Earlier, Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yair Lapid said that Israel, Russia and the US are studying the possibility of resuming trilateral consultations at the level of heads of security councils, and the next meeting may be held this month. 

On Friday, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz published an analysis in which it said that Iran has reduced its activity in Syria and cut down the number of its affiliated militias, attributing the step to Russia’s aid and pressure.
