Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is set to fly to Moscow in May to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, after his expected meeting with US President Donald Trump in Washington in April.
The two are set to discuss the general situation in the Middle East, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the stalled peace talks.
Also on the agenda, according to reports in the Russian press, are the take-aways from the Arab League’s annual summit in Jordan later this week.
The meeting is set for May 11, according to the Kremlin.
Abbas is expected in Washington in mid-April for a first meeting with Trump, after the US president extended the invitation in a phone call earlier this month.
This month, Abbas met with Trump’s Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt who was visiting Israel and the West Bank. He also made an unexpected trip to Jordan.
Abbad and Putin last met in Moscow in April 2015.
