MOSCOW, December 29 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow lauds Palestine’s position on the non-interference into internal affairs of the Arab states, including in the conflict in Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Saturday.
Commenting on the development of the situation on the Palestinian track, the ministry said, “The situation on the Palestinian track of the Middle East peace process remains difficult. Israel’s settlement activity remains a serious obstacle towards resuming talks. In recent days Israel has announced further steps towards realising the plans to construct settlements on the West Bank and in East Jerusalem. Russia and the international community condemned this fact.”
“The way to overcome the deadlock and tension on the Palestinian track is well-known. It is necessary to stop unilateral actions and restore trust between the parties that will create conditions for resuming the Palestinian-Israeli dialogue on the internationally recognised basis.” “This would allow the parties to start discussing the final status – the border issue, security, Jerusalem, refugees and water resources,” the ministry said.
“The deterioration of the state of Palestinian refugees in Syria, in particular in the Yarmouk camp, nearby Damascus, arouses serious concern. The continuation of clashes between the supporters and the opponents of the Bashar al-Assad regime made many Palestinian refugees to move to neighbouring Lebanon that additionally destabilises the situation in the country.” To this end, according to Moscow, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who confirmed the country’s position on the non-interference into internal affairs of the Arab countries, including in the conflict in Syria, has a big significance.
“We consider such approach correct. It meets the task to prevent the conflict from being spread to the areas where Palestinians live,” the ministry said.
