BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will reportedly visit Moscow in May to discuss the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Palestinian ambassador to Russia Abd al-Hafith Nawfal said on Wednesday.

Nawfal told Russian news agency Sputnik that Abbas would discuss Israeli attempts to avoid a two-state solution, as well as the US’ stance towards the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in statement on Wednesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin had invited both Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with him in Moscow to break the stalemate in the peace process.

Lavrov expressed appreciation to both Palestinian and Israeli officials for their approval of the Russian proposal to host such a meeting.
