Recent Cabinet meetings have dealt with the threat of Iran's presence near the Syrian border.

Israel's public diplomacy systems have been very active, mainly on the diplomatic front, in warning of the danger of Iran's presence close to the Israeli-Syrian border.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu himself is involved in this campaign – and has recently held many conversations with leaders from across Europe – both from large countries such as Britain and Germany as well as those of smaller countries.

Netanyahu, in his conversations with these leaders, describes to them the situation, outlines the security assessments of the problems that may arise on the border and which create a significant threat to Israel, and asks for their support on this issue.

In addition, talks are being held with members of the U.S. administration.

In this context, Netanyahu recently told the Saban Forum in Washington, "We will not allow that regime to entrench itself militarily in Syria as it seeks to do for the express purpose of eradicating our state."
