Reuters quoted a Kremlin source as saying that Putin stressed that “there is no alternative to the launch of intra-Syrian negotiations under the auspices of the United Nations, as well as to the continued and uncompromising fight against Islamic State and other extremist groups acting in Syria.”

Netanyahu flew to Moscow in September, soon after Russia's military engagement in Syria, to set up a mechanism to prevent the accidental confrontation of Russian and Israeli fighter-planes over Syria.
