Putin Grants Netanyahu Schindler's Letter During Meeting in Moscow

He told reporters following the meeting that he made clear that Israel will not allow Iran to manufacture or deploy missiles in Lebanon; or turn Syria into a military base for the benefit of Iran.

This is the seventh meeting between the two leaders since Russian forces have engaged in an air campaign against Syria terrorists, under the request of Damascus.

The Israeli army has recently released a stark warning against Iran addressed to the citizens of Lebanon, where it claims Tehran is building military facilities.

Netanyahu was accompanied on the trip by National Security Council head Meir Ben Shabbat and Military Intelligence chief Maj.

In December, Netanyahu hailed US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but this runs contrary to Russian policy on the Middle East.

"Through the actions and inaction of the Lebanese authorities, Lebanon is turning into one big missile factory while much of the global community looks the other way", Manelis wrote in the op-ed.

The second set was much more comfortable as she held serve and took the two chances to break she presented to seal the win. And it won't have escaped Kerber's attention that she is the last remaining Grand Slam champion in the women's draw .

Since then, Netanyahu has held meetings with Putin in Moscow, in between communicating by telephone. The upcoming meeting for Monday between Putin and Netanyahu was previously discussed over a telephonic conversation on New Year's day. Netanyahu said that with the Mideast at a crossroads, there is an opportunity to stabilize Syria and Lebanon, but that there is one actor - Iran - which is trying to do the opposite.

"We see here this very moving presentation of documents from the Sobibor uprising, in which a Jewish Red Army officer led - against all odds - the successful breakout, the breakout to freedom", Netanyahu continued.

"A special thank you that you agreed to have the meeting today here, in particular", Putin said according to a Hebrew translation of his statement provided by Netanyahu's office. Here, the Israeli prime minister presented Putin with information on Iran's activities that could directly endanger the Jewish state.

"I think that main lesson learned from the rise of the Nazis, and afterwards the defeat of the Nazis, is the need to powerfully stand up to murderous ideology in time", Netanyahu said at the museum.

Putin gave Netanyahu as a gift a letter the German industrialist Oskar Schindler, who save some 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust, sent to his wife.
