DANANG, Vietnam - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday he had a normal dialogue with US leader Donald Trump at a summit in Vietnam, and described Trump as civil, well-educated, and comfortable to deal with.

Putin said that a mooted bilateral sit-down meeting with Trump did not happen at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, citing scheduling issues on both sides and unspecified protocol issues.

Putin, at a briefing for reporters at the end of the summit, said there was still a need for further US-Russia contacts, both at the level of heads of state and their officials, to discuss issues including security and economic development.defense systems “are flexible enough” to counter any threat, including UAVs.

In mid-August Israel carried out a test of its Patriot system focusing on the threats posed by UAVs and firing multiple interceptor missiles towards aerial targets over central Israel.

With the Iron Dome, the Arrow and David’s Sling, Israel’s aerial defense system provide a comprehensive protective umbrella able to counter the growing missile threats from short range rockets to longer-range ballistic missiles fired at ranges between 40 to 300 km.
