Russia's deputy foreign minister told CNN Friday that Russia and Iran are not allies in Syria and that Moscow is committed to Israel's safety.

Asked whether Moscow and Tehran are allies in Syria, Sergei Ryabkov said: "I wouldn't use this type of words to describe where we are with Iran."

Rybakov added: "We in no way underestimate the importance of measures that would ensure very strong security of the state of Israel. This is one of the top priorities of Russia."

Rybakov also denied US President Donald Trump was a Russian agent or that Russia intervened in US elections, saying: "We are not that threatening. We are not trying to meddle in US affairs."

On Wednesday, Russia said that Israel should stop carrying out what it called arbitrary air strikes on Syria days after the Israeli air force targeted Iranian militias there.
