JERUSALEM, June 16 (Newswires) -  A meeting between Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev, US National Security Advisor John Bolton and Israeli National Security Advisor Meir Ben-Shabbat is to be held in Jerusalem later in June will yield practical results in terms of stabilization in Syria and the Middle East.

“As for our cooperation with the United States on Syria, dialogue has been failing for a long time. But to the credit of our American partners, they have demonstrated enough of political will and now we are getting prepared for a meeting of Russian, US and Israeli security chiefs that is to take place within weeks in Jerusalem,” a Russian official told TASS. “We hope our joint work will yield common practical steps aimed at stabilizing the situation in Syria and the entire Middle East.”
