Russia Backs Independent Palestine

"Russia made its choice a long time ago ...we supported and will support the inalienable right of the Palestinian people to an independent state with its capital in East Jerusalem [al-Quds]," Medvedev said on Tuesday at a press conference with acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank oasis town of Ariha (Jericho).

Medvedev also said without Israel's “reasonable” decision on its settlement activity, Middle East talks will not be progressive.

"It is impossible to close your eyes to this fact,” the Russian president said.'
