Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin held an impromptu conversation on Sunday in Paris، their first since the downing of a Russian plane in Syria on September 18، as the Jerusalem Post said.
Moscow claims that Israeli actions led to the downing of the plane by Syrian air defenses، sparking a crisis in the otherwise strong ties between the two countries.
A formal meeting initially scheduled between the two men in Paris was canceled. But the two leaders did manage to talk on the sidelines of a luncheon event at the Élysée Palace in Paris. The Prime Minister’s Office released photos of them، both standing and sitting، that hinted at a warming of ties.
Netanyahu told reporters that the “conversation was very good and to the point; I would say it was very important.” He refused to elaborate any further on the conversation.

Netanyahu was one of more than 70 world leaders who converged on Paris to attend a special ceremony at the Arch de Triomphe to mark the 100th anniversary of World War I.
France had discouraged significant sidebar meetings، but Netanyahu still managed to hold short talks and be photographed with significant leaders، including US President Donald Trump، who can be seen with his hand on the premier’s shoulder.
Netanyahu later told reporters that the way he had been received was very significant، noting that he sat next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and “alongside the president of Italy and the governor-general of Australia. But what was very interesting was [that there were] a number of African leaders who spoke about the importance of cooperation with Israel and the way it could of course help their countries.”
