Bennett to ask Putin to keep Iran away from border

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is expected to fly to Moscow next Friday for a first introductory meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and ask him to keep the Iranians away from Israel’s northern border, and to preserve Israel’s freedom of action in the region, Israel Hayom reported.
Bennett is also expected to be joined by Minister Zeev Elkin, who has participated as an interpreter in Putin’s previous meetings with former Prime Minister Netanyahu, and as a result is well versed in the intricacies of ties and agreements between the two countries over the years. For Bennett, the main purpose of the meeting is to establish an interpersonal relationship with President Putin, but in practice, the main issue that will arise is Iran, or rather what Israel sees as its troubling attempts to entrench itself in Syria and establish terrorist infrastructure there.
