MOSCOW, January 19. /TASS/. The issue of holding a ministerial meeting of the Quartet on Middle East settlement on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference is being considered, a Western diplomatic source told TASS on Monday.
“It has been proposed to consider this possibility and this issue is currently being discussed,” the source said.
Last week, Palestinian Ambassador in Moscow Fayed Mustafa said that the idea to hold in February a ministerial meeting of the Middle East Quartet (a grouping of countries and international entities established to lead mediation in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, comprising the United States, European Union, United Nations and Russia) was put forward, but no specific agreement had been reached yet.
The diplomat said that “a four-party meeting (of the Quartet members) will be held in Brussels on January 26.” “We hope the Quartet’s activity will be intensified in order to accelerate the political settlement process,” the ambassador said.
