Israel is doing everything that depends on it to prevent the emergence of ultra-modern weapons in the hands of Hezbollah, Netanyahu says
MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. Israel considers the absence of a new terrorist front in the Golan Heights and the fact that Hezbollah has no modern weapons to be “the red lines” of its security, the country’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday during a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin.
“Firstly, we are doing everything that depends on us to prevent the emergence of ultra-modern weapons in the hands of Hezbollah, which get there from Syria and Iraq,” he said. “Secondly, we are doing everything to prevent the appearance of an additional terror front against us in the Golan Heights,” Netanyahu said.
“This is the red line we have identified,” he added.
On Golan Heights
The Golan heights will remain part of Israel’s territory, Benjamin Netanyahu went on to say.
“With an agreement or without, the Golan Heights will remain part of [Israel’s] sovereign territory,” Netanyahu said.
Israel calls for closer security cooperation with Russia
In Netanyahu’s words, Israel urges closer cooperation with Moscow in security area to prevent various incidents.
“I have come here with the main goal — to increase coordination between us in the security area in order to prevent various mistakes, misunderstanding and incidents,” the prime minister said.
