(November 15, 2018 / JNS) Although Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin talked on the sidelines during this week’s centennial commemoration in Paris recognizing the end of World War I, no future talks have been scheduled between the two leaders.
“We haven’t planned yet,” Putin said on Thursday. “No specific dates of a future bilateral meeting were negotiated.”

In Paris, the two held an impromptu conversation as a formal meeting between the two was scheduled.
Netanyahu said that the “conversation was very good and to the point; I would say it was very important.”
The prime minister abruptly left Paris for Israel to deal with the latest barrage of rockets being fired by Hamas in Gaza into the Jewish state.
