MOSCOW, December 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is ready to contribute to promoting the Palestinian-Israeli talks jointly with the Quartet of Mideast Peace, the Foreign Ministry reported.
The ministry commented on Monday’s meeting between the Russian and Israeli foreign ministers, Sergei Lavrov and Avigdor Lieberman, who is currently in Moscow to take part in a session of the intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation.
The foreign ministers of both countries exchanged views “on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa with the focus on the Syrian crisis and the Middle East settlement”, the ministry said.
“They discussed several international issues, including Iran’s nuclear program,” the report says.
