(Worthy News) - Israel and Russia signed a diplomatic framework agreement for the upcoming year, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement, concluding MFA Director General Dore Gold's visit to Moscow.
Golds visit was pre-planned, marking 25 years of diplomatic relations, and included meetings with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and other high level Kremlin officials.
The foreign ministry said Syria topped the agenda for the talks. In the wake of the increased Russian presence in the region, and a Russian Iranian deal to supply the sophisticated s300 system, Gold voiced Israel's concern regarding "the danger of sophisticated weapons reaching Hezbollah and the need to fight these transfers", reiterating that Israel will continue to act to prevent arms shipments to Hezbollah and other terror groups.
