MOSCOW, April 1. /TASS/. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will visit Russia on May 11, Palestine’s Ambassador to Moscow Abdel Hafiz Nofal told TASS on Saturday.
"We can confirm Abbas’s visit to the Russian Federation on May 11," Nofal said. "The confirmation has been received from Russia as well."
Nevertheless, "it is still unclear whether the Russian and Palestinian leaders will meet in Moscow or in Sochi," he added.
Putin and Abbas are expected to focus on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he said.
"The leaders of Russia and Palestine will discuss efforts needed to resume the peace talks between Palestine and Israel, taking into consideration the phone conversation of Trump and Abbas held in March," Nofal said.
"The sides will also speak about development of bilateral relations following the second session of the Russian-Palestinian intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation due on April 4-7 in Moscow," the ambassador said.
Besides, he confirmed Abbas’s readiness to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at any time in Moscow.
"But Israel is not ready for this," he added.
