TEL AVIVI, March 5. /TASS/. Russia is playing a big role in the process of movement towards peace settlement of the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians, Israeli opposition leader Yitzhak Herzog said on Sunday ahead of his visit to Moscow.
"The Russian Federation plays an enormous role in the region, has a great influence, can be a major promoter of a peace process" and the two-state solution, he said. "Russia wants to play a role in the relationship between the Israelis and the Palestinians. I want very much to make a historical change."
He said his visit to Russia will take place at the invitation of Leonid Slutsky, chairman of the international committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house. Apart from that, he said, he plans to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his deputy, Mikhail Bogdanov.
