    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian and Israeli leaders discussed the Syrian crisis and coordinated efforts in the fight against terrorism in a phone conversation on Tuesday, the Kremlin press service said.

    "Russian President Vladimir Putin’s telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took place at the initiative of the Israeli side," the Kremlin said. "It was agreed to maintain active dialogue at various levels, including for the purpose of further coordinating the antiterrorist front."

    It noted that Putin underscored the inevitability of Syrian talks under the auspices of the United Nations and continuing an uncompromising fight with Daesh and other extremists groups in the Arab republic.

    The Russian leader called for a de-escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian violence and the importance of practical steps toward resolving tensions.
