    Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed that the S-300 missile system is purely defensive and will not pose threat to Israel or any other country in the Middle East in telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has reassured Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that lifting of the embargo on deliveries of advanced S-300 air defense systems to Iran will not threaten Israel's security, the Kremlin said Tuesday.

    Putin and Netanyahu discussed the Russian president's decision in a phone call earlier on Tuesday.

    "Putin stressed that the S-300 missile system is purely defensive and will not pose threat to Israel or any other country in the Middle East," the Kremlin press service said in a statement.
