Russian President Vladimir Putin reiterated
Moscow's position Tuesday that only a ceasefire and a political
solution could avert an "extremely harmful" continuation of the
Syrian conflict, according to the Interfax news agency.
He made his comments during a visit from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said the two countries should work to ensure stability in the Middle East, while stressing that Israel would always take steps to protect its citizens.
Despite media reports that the hastily arranged visit by Netanyahu had been aimed at persuading Putin not to go ahead with the sale of S-300 missiles to Syria, neither commented on the topic after their meeting.
