Netanyahu speaks with Putin in Paris — Russian media

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin while the two were in Paris for Armistice Day commemorations, Russia’s Interfax news agency reports, citing the Kremlin.

The news agency does not report on any details of Netanyahu’s conversation with Putin.

Netanyahu’s office had been working to organize a sit-down with Putin while the prime minister was in Paris in what would be their first meeting since Syrian air defenses downed a Russian military plane during an Israeli airstrike in Syria.

Russia has blamed Israel for the incident, in which 15 Russian servicemen were killed, a charge rejected by Jerusalem.
