MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Foreign Ministry insists that only Palestine’s authorities can make public the results of the exhumation of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s body.

“Russia’s position on announcement of the results of the exhumation of Arafat’s body remains unchanged. Only the Palestinian authorities can make this information public,” the ministry told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.

In 2012, the Al-Jazeera TV channel launched its own investigation into the death of Yasser Arafat. Journalists found out that he was poisoned with polonium-210, a radioactive element. The medical records of Arafat, who died at a military hospital near Paris in 2004, said he had a stroke resulting from a blood disorder.

For a murder inquiry into the death of Arafat his body was exhumed and his belongings, which his widow had kept, were analyzed. No official results have been announced so far, but some media reports that poisoning suspicions are confirmed.
