Russian, Palestinian officials discuss Mideast settlement

Russian and Palestinian officials discussed in Moscow Monday issues related to settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the foreign ministry said.

Russian president special envoy and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov met with Moussa Abu Marzouq, member of Hamas politburo, on settlement of Palestinian-Israeli conflict in line with relevant UN resolutions, the ministry added in a statement.

The two officials also discussed the Palestinian national unity in line with an Egyptian-brokered agreement between Hamas and Fatah.

This is the second visit by a delegation from Hamas to Moscow in the past three months.
