Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump for agreeing to hold what he called a “historic” security meeting between the national security advisors of the three countries, at a press conference ahead of the trilateral talks in Jerusalem on Tuesday.

Netanyahu said “it’s historic because it’s the first meeting between our three countries’ national security advisors in our capital Jerusalem. I want to thank President Trump and President Putin for agreeing to hold the security summit and for sending their most senior advisors.”

The Israeli prime minister noted that the leaders would use the summit to advance stability in the region, particularly in Syria. He said, “Israel has acted hundreds of times to prevent Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria while it actively and openly calls and works for our destruction.”

“Israel will continue to prevent Iran from using neighbouring territory as platforms to attack us, and Israel will respond forcefully to any such attacks,” added Netanyahu.

Patrushev said that he shared Netanyahu’s wish to see “a peaceful and secure” Syria, noting that “Syria’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity also need to be ensured, in accordance with the United Nations Charter.”
