The two discussed a variety of issues, including the death of journalist Sheerin Abu Akla • The Palestinians: "Lavrov stressed the need to investigate the incident"



Palestinian Authority Minister of Civil Affairs Hussein al-Sheikh met yesterday (Tuesday) with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

In a Twitter tweet, a-Sheikh revealed that the meeting was held in Moscow, during which regional and international issues as well as bilateral issues were discussed.

The meeting was also attended by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Bogdanov.

The Palestinians also reported that Lavrov offered his condolences on the death of journalist Sheerin Abu Akala, stressing the need for a comprehensive and professional investigation into her murder incident.

Al-Sheikh's visit to Russia comes just two weeks after a delegation of senior Hamas officials visited Russia, so they met with Bogdanov and tried to arrange a more senior meeting with Lavrov himself.

In the past, there have been attempts by Russia to mediate between Hamas and open an effort to fight between the two rival sides and promote reconciliation talks between Gaza and Ramallah, but to no avail.

The contacts between the Russians and the Palestinians come, among other things, as part of Moscow's desire to gain some influence in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a counterweight to the United States.

A-Sheikh's visit to Russia comes amid tensions that developed between Jerusalem and Moscow following the harsh remarks he made to Rub regarding "Hitler's Jewish roots" - which created a diplomatic incident and drew sharp condemnation.
