The Palestine highly appreciates Russia’s role in the “middle East Quartet”, which still includes the U.S., EU and UN.
Earlier, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas sent a message to Russian President Vladimir Putin with a request to help arrange talks with Israel in Moscow. Before that, Palestine had decided to terminate all agreements with Israel and the United States. The head of the administration added that negotiations Palestine will return only by the intervention of a third party.
On 17 may Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu said that the time has come to Annex Palestinian territory in favor of Jewish settlements on the West Bank of the Jordan river and the Jordan valley. To make such a move Israel called on the United States.
According to the plan of the American President Donald trump on the settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict (“the deal of the century”), Palestine needs “a few grow in size”, and its capital located in East Jerusalem.
