Israel: Russia, not US, can resolve the situation in Syria

The United States is not a key player in the Middle East, it is Russia that will be able to put an end to the conflict between Israel, Syria and Iran, said Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on diplomatic issues and former Israeli ambassador to Washington Michael Oren.

"The American part of the equation is to give us support, (however, the US now) has almost no leverage on the ground. America did not invest in Syria. She is not in the game, "RIA Novosti reports referring to Bloomberg's words.

According to him, Russia will be able to stop confrontation on the border.

"Expectations are such that the Russians will stop it (confrontation), because I'm not sure that anyone is interested now in the war," the diplomat said.

Oren also said that in the opinion of the Israeli side, Russia has the opportunity to "press against the wall" Syria and Iran.

Recall, 10 February 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a telephone conversation, during which they discussed the situation in Syria.
