BETHLEHEM, June 26 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday met with Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) leader Mahmoud Abbas to discuss in detail ways out of the crisis in the Palestinian-Israeli negotiating process.
The Russian president called on both parties to the conflict to show restraint and adhere to their obligations.
“Any unilateral actions until final reconciliation are counterproductive,” he told a news conference after his talks with Abbas. “It is vital to show maximal restraint, to strictly comply with the undertakings.”
“Further efforts in this direction will inevitably bring about positive results,” he stressed.
According to the Russian president, Russia and the PLO have “close or similar positions on all key regional and global problems.”
“We spoke in detail about ways to overcome the crisis in the Palestinian-Israeli negotiating process,” Putin noted. “I would like to note the conscientious position of the PLO leaders and personally of Mahmoud Abbas, their commitment to peaceful settlement on the basis of international law and the two-state principle.”
