Putin meets Netanyahu, warns against extremism

Meeting his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu in Moscow on Thursday, Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin specifically warned against extremism, an evil that he said endangers the world peace.

The two men also discussed an array of issues of mutual interest, separately stressing the need to stave off the terrorism threat.

Putin accepted an invitation by Netanyahu to visit Israel in May 2012 to attempt a ceremony of the unveiling of a monument to the victims of World War Two.

The ceremony will coincide with the May 9 celebrations dedicated to the 67th anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany in the Second World War.

For his part, Netanyahu praised the then Soviet Union’s considerable contribution to the victory.
