MOSCOW, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is grateful to the Palestinian leadership for consistent contribution to Russia’s presence on the Palestinian land, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a meeting with Palestinian counterpart Riyad al-Maliki on Friday.
“This is important to put the historical record straight and to expand contacts between people,” Lavrov said, adding over 3,000 Russian tourists visited Palestine annually.
Lavrov said he was sure that Russia’s presence in Palestine “will have an impact on making the Palestinian land attractive”.
Commenting on projects, which are being realised now, the Russian minister said a school, which would admit pupils in September, had been opened in Bethlehem. “A multifunctional centre is being built at Bethlehem’s Vladimir Putin Street,” he added.
“On Thursday, January 23, Russian President Vladimir Putin met Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas. The meeting focus on Russian-Palestinian relations. The presidents coordinated a mechanism, which will facilitate the expansion of investment relations,” Lavrov said.
“A high-level working group will be created. There are a series of projects that experts of the group should coordinate within this group,” the Russian minister said.
