Israel worries Assad could let his Iranian allies entrench near its lines or that Syrian forces may defy a 1974 Golan demilitarization. And U.S. and Russian officials have signaled that a broad framework for such a deal is likely to be the main outcome of the summit. It bombed Iranian targets in Syria in response.
Israel has repeatedly warned of Iran's growing military presence in nearby Syria which it considers as a threat to its security.
He also praised Russia's support for Iran at the worldwide level, especially in the United Nations, adding that bilateral relations in the defense, political, economic and nuclear fields indicate a long-term cooperation program between the two countries.
As various rebel alliances fractured and jihadi forces such as the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) took over, however, the USA began to shift its priorities in the conflict and Russian Federation intervened in support of Assad and his Iranian ally.
Before their meeting, Netanyahu told the Russian president: "Clearly our focus is on Syria and Iran".
Last month, Israel fired a missile at a drone that approached its airspace near the Syrian frontier, and in February it shot down what it said was an Iranian drone that entered its airspace.
"Iranian military advisers will leave Syria if the Syrian officials say they do not need their presence", he added.
After two weeks of intensive military operations, Assad's forces now control the southern city of Daraa, where the revolution against Assad started, and the surrounding countryside. Israel seized Syria's Golan Heights without global recognition in a 1967 war and retained it after a second conflict ended in a 1974 truce, which left the countries at an indefinite standoff that has witnessed a resurgence in violence in recent months.
That incident came as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Moscow for talks with Vladimir Putin about Syria and Iran.
So what might a potential deal look like?
He said that after the US' withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was a strategic mistake made by the United States president, the Islamic Republic of Iran chose to send special envoys to convey the messages of top Iranian leaders to other countries.
Comments by some US officials have also indicated what might be an emerging compromise. "There are possibilities for doing a larger negotiation on helping to get Iranian forces out of Syria. which would be a significant step forward".
A possible deal could see Syrian troops replacing Iranian forces and its proxy Hezbollah militia in the areas near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
