BEIRUT, Lebanon – A recent comment by reinstated Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has prompted renewed interest in closer Israeli-Russian relationship – despite their differences over Iran’s nuclear program, informed sources say in a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
Lieberman suggested that Israel needed to find alternative strategic partners to the United States, a comment which later prompted his deputy to downplay the statement.
Lieberman referred to the idea as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was in Moscow to discuss further links between the two countries, particularly in technical cooperation, trade and regional security.
At their meeting, Netanyahu reportedly praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for pushing for the full destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal.
Putin was in a “joyful mood” at a televised news conference. For his part, Netanyahu also spoke about the historical cultural ties between Russians and Jews.
