The US President’s advisor on national security John Bolton, head of the Israeli National Security Council Meir Ben-Shabbat and his Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev will hold a meeting in Jerusalem in late June.
According to the Saudi newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat, one of the main topics discussed at the meeting will be Iran’s military presence in Syria.
According to the article, Israel and the United States intend to offer Russia a deal in which Washington and Jerusalem will recognize the legitimacy of the Assad regime and subsequently abolish all restrictive measures imposed on Damascus in exchange for Moscow participating in joint actions to contain Tehran.
As the newspaper notes, “the agenda of the meeting is based on” the mutual understanding reached between the two presidents, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, on the importance of ensuring Israel’s security and supporting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “
