In a conversation with the French channel LCI, Netanyahu noted the threat to Israel that comes from Iran.

“Initially, I told Putin: “Look, we have a choice: we can go to a confrontation or we can find a common language.

Israel operates freely….

We do not interfere in your actions in Syria, and you leave us alone,” the prime minister said.

Netanyahu added that they "have found a compromise that serves Israel's interests, and therefore Putin thinks it does not threaten Russian interests."

“We decided to leave each other alone, each for his own part,” he concluded.
