Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that both Israel and Russia agree that Iranian proliferation of nuclear weapons poses a great danger to both Israel and the world, speaking at a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Jerusalem on Monday.

Speaking after Putin, Netanyahu made three demands for Iran: that it must cease all uranium enrichment in the country, that it transfer all enriched uranium out of the country, and that it disassemble its underground nuclear facilities.

Netanyahu also spoke about his hope to hear how Russia can contribute to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Putin is scheduled to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem later in his visit.
