Palestine ambassador to Russia leaves role for Turkey

May 28, 2015 3:45 P.M. (Updated: May 28, 2015 3:45 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Ambassador of Palestine to Russia, Faed Mustafa, will leave Moscow to Ankara Friday, where he will submit his credentials as ambassador of Palestine to Turkey.

Mustafa told Ma'an he "is leaving Moscow as relations between Palestine and Russia have reached their highest point at political, economic, cultural and other levels."

A farewell ceremony attended by several ambassadors of Arab countries was held in his honor, where the deputy Russian FM presented a high-profile badge of honor to Mustafa.

Mustafa served six years as ambassador to Russia after serving 11 years in different positions at the embassy.

During Mustafa's period as ambassador, more than 20 cooperation agreements were signed between Russia and Palestine, and President Mahmoud Abbas visited Russia eight times.
