MOSCOW, March 1. /TASS/. Israel understands Russia’s actions in Syria, Israeli Ambassador to Russia Zvi Heifetz has said. According to him, Russia has made a substantial contribution to the ceasefire agreement in this country.
"We understand Russia’s actions in Syria. However, it is very important for us to eventually prevent the possibility that Iran will sit on the Golan Heights, to prevent the possibility of Iran’s aggression from Syrian territory and to prevent the supplies of weapons to Iran through Syria," he said on Tuesday at a meeting with Federation Council speaker Valentina Matviyenko.
The diplomat also commended Russia’s contribution to the ceasefire agreement in Syria. "This is a big contribution, and this should be appreciated," he said.
