Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu today (Tuesday) released a video in which he addressed Israeli citizens ahead of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi, Russia.

"Tomorrow I will go to a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin; the head of the Mossad and the head of the National Security Council will join me. I will discuss with him Iran's accelerated attempt to establish military bases in Syria," Netanyahu said.

"This is, of course, proof of Iran's aggression that has not diminished in the least after the nuclear agreement, but it also poses a problem not only for Israel, but for all the countries of the Middle East and the entire world," he said.

The Prime Minister today held security consultations ahead of the trip. Netanyahu will be accompanied by the Mossad chief and Minister Ze'ev Elkin.
