During the visit, Abbas is expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ushakov said on Friday. Earlier, Palestinian Ambassador in Moscow Fayed Mustafa said Abbas would visit Russia shortly.
“Special attention will be paid to pressing regional and international issues, particularly to the Palestinian-Israeli negotiating process and the situation in the Middle East and North Africa,” Ushakov said.
Putin and Abbas are also expected to discuss the conflict in Syria, he said, adding that the Palestinian leader would meet with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
