CAIRO, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will arrive in Russia on Wednesday, January 22, for talks with the Russian leadership, Palestine News Agency WAFA reported on Monday.
During his four-day visit, the Palestinian leader will visit Moscow and Russia’s second biggest city St. Petersburg. Talks with the Russian leadership scheduled for Thursday will focus on “bilateral relations, ‘the Palestine dossier’, as well as regional and international issues,” Palestine’s Ambassador to Russia Fayed Mustafa told the news agency.
In Moscow, Mahmoud Abbas is also scheduled for talks with Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill and the chairman of the Council of Muftis of Russia, Ravil Gainutdin.
