“At the same time, we must emphasize that we will not enter into negotiations if Russia is not a major partner along with the rest of the Quartet (the United States, the United Nations and the European Union),” the Palestinian leader said in statements to the TASS news agency, released in this country.

On the eve of his meeting this Tuesday in the city of Sochi with President Vladimir Putin, Abbas stressed his interest in “seeing other ideas and measures from Moscow” to promote a peaceful settlement between the parties in conflict, in accordance with international legitimacy.

He also praised Russian efforts in the inter-Palestinian dialogue to achieve reconciliation and end the division.

The head of the Palestinian Authority added that during the meeting they will also discuss issues related to strengthening bilateral relations in the economic and cultural spheres, and exchange views on regional and international issues.

The leader thanked Moscow for delivering Covid-19 vaccine that helped to contain the pandemic and noted that the Russian-Palestinian cooperation is developing in several economic areas.

However, he clarified that its progress “is complicated by the actions of the Israeli occupation authorities, which restrict exports and imports between Palestine and the countries of the world.”

He highlighted Russia’s support to the country with the provision of scholarships and training of Palestinian security forces.
