Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said in Moscow that Iran must be prevented from obtaining a nuclear bomb, no matter what the price. 

He also vowed that Israel will continue to defend itself from Iranian actions in Syria.

Lapid  was speaking following a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, amid concerns about Russian moves to curb Israeli strikes.

There cannot be regional stability as long as Iran maintains a presence and continues to export terror, he warned. 

Former Zionist Union MK Ksenia Svetlova is the director of the program on Israel-Middle East relations at Mitvim – The Israeli Institute for Regional Foreign Policies.
