Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will travel to Moscow in two weeks to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin announced Tuesday.

According to the statement, Netanyahu will arrive in Moscow on November 20 for a brief working visit.

The two men last met in May in the the Black Sea resort of Sochi, where Netanyahu reportedly urged Putin not to sell S-300 anti-aircraft batteries to Syria. The talks this time are expected to center on a number of different issues, including Iran, Syria and the diplomatic process with the Palestinians.

Israel has a regular dialogue with Russia, and Israeli prime ministers fly not infrequently to Moscow to meet Russia's leaders. Putin has visited Israel twice as president, the last time in June 2012.
