(JNS) Despite tensions between their home countries, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Feb. 21 in Moscow, where the two are expected to discuss the Iranian threat.

“It’s very important that we continue to prevent Iran from entrenching in Syria,” said Netanyahu. “In many ways we’ve blocked that advance and we’re committed to continue blocking it, preventing Iran from creating another war front against us right here opposite the Golan Heights. This is the main subject I will be discussing with President Putin.”

The Washington Institute for Near East Policy’s Anna Borshchevskaya told JNS that Putin and Netanyahu want stability in the region despite their different goals.
