Russia welcomes an agreement to form a national unity government in the Palestinian National Authority
Russia welcomes an agreement to form a national unity government in the Palestinian National Authority, the Foreign Ministry said Tuesday. Arab media reported that the Islamic militant group Hamas has yielded key posts in the national unity government, set to be formed in two weeks, to the opposition Fatah party and other Palestinian groups. The reports said Hamas will lose the foreign, interior and finance ministers' portfolios, and that key Hamas political figures will not join the government. "Moscow is convinced that if this agreement is implemented, an important step toward Palestinian unity and the stabilization of the situation in the Palestinian territories will be made," Mikhail Kamynin, the official ministry spokesman, said in a statement. Kamynin said a real chance to overcome the humanitarian crisis and develop the Palestinian economy will be created. "The formation of a new government based on a strategic choice favoring peace and a political settlement with Israel will have a special significance for the resumption of the negotiating process. It is the only way to achieve a solid and comprehensive settlement in the Middle East," he said.
