Bennett to Putin: World must stand firm against Iran’s nuclear progress

In a phone call, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett tells Russian President Vladimir Putin that countries negotiating with Iran in Vienna must stand firmly against progress in Tehran’s nuclear program.

According to a readout from the Prime Minister’s Office, the two discuss regional security and agree on “continued cooperation in the region” — a likely reference to Israeli Air Force activity in Syria, where Moscow has troops stationed.

Putin invites Bennett and his wife for a visit to Saint Petersburg, and the Israeli leader says he would be happy to come.
