MOSCOW (Ma'an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday called for Russia to have an essential role in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, a Ma'an reporter said.

Abbas met with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Thursday in Novo-Ogaryovo in Russia, where he praised the country's recent roles in Syria and Iran.

Abbas briefed Putin on the updates in the region and on the peace process.

Putin called for the improvement of economic relations between Russia and the Palestinian Authority.

During his four-day visit to Russia, Abbas is also scheduled to meet Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

THE PA WILL try and FAIL TO involve others to do what they can not - FORCE ISRAEL TO SURRENDER TO THEIR DEMANDS, but: -1- The Only "essential roles in Israeli-Palestinian peace"-state process are those of the State of Israel, and the Palestinian Authority, and -2- Not Russia, Nor the USA, Nor any other state, Nor even the United Nations can or should have an essential role in peace/statehood process !!

Abbas lives in fantasy world. How is russia has any connection to israel? If usa and mexico has problems or russian and ukraine has problems. Does israel interfere? Israel is own sovereign and independent country and will not listen to anyone. Abbs should wake up from fantasy he is in

Abbas praised Russia for its role in Syria. Bravo. Abbas praised the nation most responsible for the Syrian genocide of Palestinians. As 18,000 Palestinians lie starving in Yarmouk Abbas was slurping borscht with old Vladi. Perfect.
