MOSCOW, November 29, 20:59 /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow calls on Israel and Palestine to refrain from unilateral actions until mutually acceptable solutions are found, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister and presidential Middle East envoy Mikhail Bogdanov said on Friday on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
“A comprehensive lasting settlement is one of the key tasks of the world community,” he said. “It can be achieved though the realization of legal demands of the Palestinian people, through putting an end to the Israeli occupation and creating a Palestinian state on the West bank of the River Jordan with a capital in East Jerusalem.”
Building the Palestinian-Israeli dialogue “it is necessary to avoid any unilateral actions until mutually acceptable solutions are found, first of all, it concerns Israel’s settlement expansion plans. We are carrying out corresponding work with the Israeli side.”
Moscow, according to Bogdanov, “values its relations of friendship with Palestine.” Among key cooperation areas, he singled out efforts to strengthen the fundamentals of Palestine’s statehood.
