Israeli media: Putin refuses any summit outside Belarus
This comes after the Ukrainian President's suggestion to hold Russian-Ukrainian talks in occupied Al-Quds.
Israeli media outlets reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin refused to hold a summit with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in occupied Al-Quds and any summit outside Belarus.
"They say in Ukraine that eventually, Israeli prime minister Naftali Bennett is a mediator in communication, like Turkey, Macron, and Scholz, which means that 'Israel' is not the only route," said a political commentator in Kan Israeli channel.
On another note, Israeli media agencies reported that the Israeli occupation PM bureau denied reports saying that Bennett suggested to Zelensky accepting Putin's demands that urge Ukraine to withdraw from the disputed areas and go back on its desire to join NATO.
On his part, the political affairs commentator for Channel 12, Yaron Abraham, said that Bennett did not suggest Al-Quds as a venue for hosting a summit between Zelensky and Putin. It was the Ukrainian President who believes that Al-Quds is a neutral place, unlike Belarus, according to the commentator.
It is worth mentioning that Zelensky proposed to the Israeli Prime Minister the possibility of holding Russian talks in occupied Al-Quds, adding that "Israel" may give Ukraine security guarantees."
