Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned against any measure that would further fuel the ongoing crisis in Syria and destabilize the Arab country.

Putin warns against actions fueling crisis in Syria

Putin made the remarks on Tuesday after talks with the visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Black Sea resort of Sochi over the Syrian crisis.

“In this crucial period it is especially important to avoid any moves that can shake the situation,” Putin said without giving further details.

However, it is believed that the warning was against foreign military intervention or arming militants fighting against the Syrian government.

It was not made clear whether the two leaders reached any firm agreements on the conflict in Syria. Israel wants Russia to halt its arms supplies to the Syrian government.

US Secretary of State John Kerry and British Prime Minister David Cameron have already held talks with Russian president over the ongoing crisis in Syria.

The US, Britain and Israel are pushing Russia to stop an arms deal under which Moscow is obliged to sell Damascus an S-300 air defense system.

Washington and Moscow are at odds over the Syria crisis. While the US and its regional allies support anti-Damascus militants seeking to topple the government of President Bashar al-Assad, Russia remains a supporter of his government.

Russia accuses the West of worsening the Syria conflict by calling for Assad’s ouster. In return, Washington accuses Moscow of not doing enough to stop the bloodshed in Syria.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of Syrian troops and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.
