• Netanyahu to Putin: lifting missile ban to boost Iran ‘aggressiveness’


    JERUSALEM: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed Israel’s “grave concerns” Tuesday over Moscow’s decision to lift a ban on supplying Iran with sophisticated S-300 air defense missile systems. In a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he warned that such a step “would only increase Iran’s aggressiveness in the region and would undermine the security of the Middle East,” his office said. The Kremlin said that, during the call, initiated by Netanyahu, “Putin explained in detail the logic of actions of the Russian leadership.”
