(Worthy News)-- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Russia's president to convey his displeasure over Russia's decision to sell advanced anti-aircraft missiles to Iran. Putin for his part told Netanyahu that the missiles had only defensive capabilities and "pose no threat" to Israel, Ynet News reported.

Netanyahu's office said he spoke with Vladimir Putin Tuesday to protest Russia's planned delivery of advanced S-300 air defense missile systems to the Islamic Republic. The Kremlin confirmed the call in a statement on Tuesday.

A statement from Netanyahu's office said he "expressed Israel's dismay at the decision... (and) told President Putin that this step will only increase Iran's aggression in the region and will destabilise security in the Middle East."

In response, "Vladimir Putin explained the rationale for the decision in the current context and highlighted the fact that due to their tactical and technical characteristics, S-300 have a purely defensive significance and pose no threat to Israel," the Kremlin said in a statement. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.ynetnews.com/Ext/Comp/ArticleLayout/CdaArticlePrintPreview/0,2506,L-4647143,00.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
