MOSCOW, October 24 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian ambassadors in the Middle East met in Amman on Monday, October 24, to discuss how to increase Russia’s presence in the region.
The diplomats “discussed the current situation in the Middle East in the light of dramatic transformations there, as well as the tasks facing their embassies to increase Russia’s presence in this region and develop historically friendly relations with the Middle East states,” the Foreign Ministry said.
They “discussed the tasks of providing political and diplomatic assistance to the settlement of current conflicts and pockets of tension in the countries of the region by their own people on the basis of the U.N. Charter without violence and armed confrontation”, the ministry said.
The ambassadors paid special attention to “prospects for long-term and proper resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict on the recognised basis of international law as an important condition for leading the Middle East to the road of safe, peaceful and sustainable development”.
The Russian ambassadors to Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and Israel, the Russian representative to the Palestinian National Authority, and the Russian foreign minister’s special representative for the Middle East settlement Sergei Vershinin attended the meeting held by Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov.
