WARSAW, September 6. /TASS/. The Israeli side has suggested postponing the talks with Palestinians on a peaceful settlement in Moscow scheduled for September 9, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday following consultations with Polish leader Andrzej Duda.
"[Russian] President [Vladimir] Putin offered to meet in Moscow on September 9," Abbas said. "I agreed. I was to fly to Moscow from here (from Warsaw) to meet with (Israeli) Prime Minister (Benjamin) Netanyahu. Unfortunately, talks were held in Jerusalem yesterday between representatives of President Putin and Prime Minister Netanyahu. The Israeli representative proposed to postpone this meeting," Abbas said.
"So, the meeting will not take place. I am prepared to travel to Moscow or any other country for the next meeting, as dialogue is the only way to peace for the Palestinian people and the only opportunity for our independent country to live side by side with Israel," he noted.
Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov earlier said that Moscow supports the Israeli-Palestinian settlement process, but so far there are no specific agreements to hold the two leaders’ meeting in Moscow.
