Russian MFA Information and Press Department Commentary Regarding Decision by Palestinian National Authority to Postpone Parliamentary Elections
Moscow regards this decision with understanding. We presume that free and transparent parliamentary elections, held within the constitutional framework, will constitute an important step towards democratic reforms in the PNA, towards ensuring a normal life, stability and the rule of law in the Palestinian territories and exert a positive influence on Palestinian-Israeli settlement.
Russia will continue to assist the PNA with the formation of Palestinian statehood in the interests of creating an independent state coexisting with Israel in peace and security.
