Southforward.com – One senior US senator warns Israel not to make a deal with Russia on issues in Syria.
Reported by Times Of Israel, Thursday (7/12/2018), This was delivered by Lindsey Graham in a press statement.
He warned Israel via his Twitter account that it says to be cautious about making deals with Russia-related Syria.
“For our friends in Israel – be careful to make arrangements with Russia about Syria affecting US interests,” he wrote.
He also said that he did not believe at all that Russia would monitor Iran or the conditions in Syria.
“I do not believe Russia will oversee Iran or anyone in Syria. The US must maintain its presence in Syria to ensure the ISIS does not return and counter Russian / Iranian influence, “he added.
The warning comes after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin today in Moscow.
A senior official in Netanyahu’s group to Moscow later told Israeli reporters that Russia had begun to withdraw Syrian troops from the Israeli border.
