Israel has no plan to strike Iran: Medvedev

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says Israeli officials have assured him that they are not planning a military strike on Iran.

Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev gestures during an interview with CNN at his residence in Barvikha outside Moscow, September 15, 2009. Israel told Russia it would not launch an attack on Iran, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said in a CNN interview released on Sunday, in which he described such an attack as "the worst thing that can be imagined".

In an interview with CNN television broadcast yesterday, Medvedev also confirmed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a secret visit to Moscow this month that included a meeting with the Russian president.

In a transcript of the interview released by the Kremlin, Medvedev hedges on the question of whether Russia would support Iran if it were attacked by Israel.

Although Russia has no defense agreement with Iran "this does not mean we would like to be or will be indifferent to such an occurrence. ... But my Israeli colleagues told me they were not planning to act in this way, and I trust them," Medvedev said.

It was not clear whether those referred to included Netanyahu. Israeli President Shimon Peres also reportedly told Medvedev in a meeting this month that Israel wasn't planning an attack on Iran. But Medvedev gave the first confirmation from the Russian side that a meeting with Netanyahu had taken place.

Netanyahu vanished from public view in Israel for most of the day on September 7. His office said he had visited a secret security facility, but there was widespread speculation that he had gone to Russia - either to pressure Moscow not to deliver S-300 air-defense missiles to Iran or to inform the Kremlin of attack plans.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu came to Moscow. He did this under a closed regime, this was his decision," Medvedev said. He did not give details.
