GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — Russian deputy foreign minister Mikhail Bogdanov has voiced his country’s keenness on promoting its relations with the Hamas Movement, affirming that Moscow refused to attend the Manama economic workshop because it rejects the US deal of the century.
According to a statement issued by Hamas, Bogdanov asserted his country’s support for the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights during his meeting with a delegation from the Movement led by Mousa Abu Marzouk in Moscow.
The Russian official also emphasized the need to achieve the Palestinian unity and said that his country is ready to provide every help in this regard.
The Hamas delegation, for its part, put Bogdanov in the picture of the political developments regarding the Palestinian question.
The delegation discussed with the Russian official the avenues to heal the rift in the Palestinian arena and highlighted Hamas’s keenness on achieving the Palestinian reconciliation.
The meeting was also a chance to brief the Russian side on the difficult living conditions the Palestinian people suffer from in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, Jerusalem and abroad.
