BEIJING -- Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama discussed Syria and other regional issues in an overnight phone call from China,  Netanyahu acknowledged Thursday.

“There is an understanding that we are concerned about the security and stability of Israel, and the region surrounding it," Netanyahu told reporters at the outset of a tour of the Great Wall of China outside Beijing.

Looking out at the meandering wall that was built to protect ancient China, Netanyahu said “I am working to create security for Israel and its future, and that is what I have done in recent days in conversations with Chinese leaders, with my conversation with the US President overnight, and with the Russian president.

Netanyahu spoke by phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.  He will be meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping Thursday on his last full day in the country.
