MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia and Israel maintain an active political dialogue,
holding regular political consultations.

There are also regular delegation exchanges at various levels. “Vladimir
Putin warmly congratulated Benjamin Netanyahu with his birthday and the
Jewish holiday of Sukkot celebrated these days.

The leaders also exchanged congratulations on the occasion of the 25th
anniversary [October 18] of the restoration of diplomatic relations between
Russia and Israel and expressed commitment to further development of the
multifaceted bilateral cooperation,” the press service said.

The USSR and Israel established diplomatic relations in May 1948, then broke
them off in June 1967.

In 1987, consular relations were resumed, followed by the full resumption of
diplomatic relations in October 1991. In December 1991, an Israeli Embassy
in Moscow and a Russian Embassy in Tel Aviv were opened. Russia and Israel
have signed 19 intergovernmental agreements and work to improve the legal
infrastructure of Russian-Israeli cooperation. Israel is an important trade
and economic partner for Russia, with bilateral ties in industry,
agriculture, high technology and more.
