RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas landed in Moscow on Sunday afternoon for a two-day diplomatic visit, the Palestinian Authority’s official news agency Wafa reported.

Abbas is scheduled to meet with the Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday to address Arab League efforts to obtain a UN Security Council resolution against ongoing Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied Palestinian territory.

Abbas and Putin are also set to discuss the possible organization of an international peace conference to address the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rdeina, PLO Executive Committee Secretary-General Saeb Erekat, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, and presidential advisor on diplomatic affairs Majdi al-Khalidi are also part of the trip to Moscow.

The Palestinian ambassador to Russia Abd al-Hafith Nofal will also join the delegation.

Abbas’ visit to Russia comes on the heels of a trip to France, where the Palestinian leader met with French President Francois Hollande.
