MOSCOW, November 29. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin greeted President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people and reaffirmed support for resuming the Palestinian-Israeli negotiation process, the Kremlin’s press service reported on Saturday.
"Russia has consistently advocated in favour of the earliest execution of the legitimate rights of the Palestinians for establishment of an independent, contiguous and viable state. We believe that Palestine’s acquisition of national sovereignty on the common international legal base will be an important factor in ensuring comprehensive, just settlement in the Middle East. We are ready within multilateral efforts and in close cooperation with you to continue promoting resumption of the Palestinian-Israeli negotiation process", the telegram reads.
Russian President noted "friendly and constructive character of the Russian-Palestinian relations."
"I am confident that further expansion of the entire complex of mutually beneficial bilateral relations serves fundamental interests of our peoples. I would like to confirm that the Russian side intends to continue providing possible assistance to the Palestinian authorities in development of state institutions and in dealing with present social and economic problems," Putin added.
The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is celebrated annually on November 29 beginning from 1978.
