Netanyahu thanks Putin for pardoning Israeli woman

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin at talks in Moscow for pardoning U.S.-Israeli woman Naama Issachar, who had been jailed on drug charges. Issachar’s release came ahead of talks between Putin and Netanyahu, who flew in from Washington to pass on details of a U.S. peace plan, which Israel supports and Palestinians reject.

The release of the New Jersey-born 26-year-old is seen as a boon for Netanyahu, who had publicly appealed Putin to free her. The right-wing Israeli leader, under criminal corruption indictment, faces an election on March 2 and has campaigned on his ability to protect Israel’s interests abroad.
