Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the last minute, The Jerusalem Post reported.
It became known earlier that the head of the Israeli government will visit the capital of Russia on a working visit on Thursday to have talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Kremlin’s press service announced that Netanyahu and Putin would “exchange views” on the situation in the Middle East and discuss issues of Russian-Israeli bilateral cooperation.
Nevertheless, the Prime Minister's office sent a message on the cancellation of Netanyahu's visit to Moscow today. Although the exact reason for this decision remains unknown, the Jerusalem Post assumes that it could be caused by the internal political situation in Israel.
It was stated in the report of the office that the cancellation of the visit was agreed with the Russian side, and Putin and Netanyahu will have a telephone call tomorrow morning to discuss a new date for a visit.
