TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Speaking during his weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem, Netanyahu said he intends to discuss with the Russian leader "the various developments in the region."
He said the issues on the agenda include tightening the security coordination between the Israeli military and the Russian army in Syria, and "a series of other issues which are important, and even very important, for Israel's security," he added without elaborating.
Netanyahu's visit will last only five hours, during which he is also expected to attend the opening of an exhibition to mark 75 years to the revolt in the Nazi death camp of Sobibor in the Museum of Judaism and Tolerance in Moscow.
Netanyahu will be joined by Zeev Elkin, a Ukrainian-born and a minister in Netanyahu's coalition in charge of Jerusalem affairs and environmental protection.
Putin and Netanyahu's last meeting was held in Sochi last August.
The two leaders have met for numerous times since 2015, when Russia started to send military help to Syria, Russia's close ally and Israel's northern neighbor.
The meeting comes a few days after Netanyahu met with U.S. President Donald Trump at the Davos Economic Forum last Thursday, their fourth meeting since Trump took office in 2017.
