Putin calls Netanyahu to discuss Syria, Iran

Russian President Vladimir Putin called Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Tuesday during a round of phone calls to Middle East leaders. He briefed Netanyahu on Russian diplomatic steps for winding down the Syrian war and finishing the fight against ISIS. They talked for half an hour, during which the prime minister emphasized Israel’s objections to Iran establishing a military presence in Syria. Putin also scheduled a call to President Donald Trump in the wake of his meeting with Syrian ruler, Bashar Assad, on Monday. These conversations prepared the ground for the summit on Syria’s post-war future taking place Wednesday, Nov. 22 in the Black Sea resort of Sochi between Putin and the presidents of Iran, Hassan Rouhani and Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan

    Rabbi Nachman to Mt Zion, all else is vanity. Both Sunnis and Shiite will love the idea and honor Bibi for it. The Russians will enjoy the money and less loss of lives, in addition they will score sorely needed PR points.
    The USA will be able to focus on their own back yard and give the state department time to restructure itself.
