Ukraine asks Israel's PM Netanyahu to act as intermediary in talks with Russia

Ukraine has offered Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu to mediate in negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow.

Ambassador of Ukraine to Israel Yevhen Korniychuk said this in an interview with i24NEWS TV channel, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

“We have already asked the Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] to be involved as a possible intermediary in this scenario [negotiations between Ukraine and Russia]. Because he has good relations with both Mr. Zelensky and Mr. Putin. I'm glad to say that he didn't say no. He said he will try his best,” the ambassador said.

Korniychuk added that Ukraine is very glad that Mr. Netanyahu did not deny this mission; on the contrary, he showed his interest and willingness to help.

As Ukrinform reported, Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu wrote a letter to President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in which he said that Ukraine and Israel had significant prospects for further cooperation.
