Israel is asking Russia to delay a court session on the future of the Jewish Agency in the country in a bid to reach an agreement on the issue, Walla news reports.

The report, citing two Israeli officials, says the message was sent in recent days ahead of the court hearing set for Friday.

Israel believes that the issue can be resolved following a conversation last week between President Isaac Herzog and Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

The officials say Putin reassured Herzog that the issue was a purely legal one and that the move was not intended by Putin to punish Israel for its growing support for Ukraine.
