Palestinians say ready for any ‘fair’ peace initiative

President Mahmoud Abbas’s office said Monday the Palestinians are ready to participate in any peace initiative aimed at a “comprehensive and fair solution,” following speculation of a meeting organized by Russia.

“We are ready to participate in any regional or international initiative with the objective of a comprehensive and fair solution,” presidency spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina said in a statement.

There has been talk of a possible meeting between Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be organized by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

A Kremlin spokesman said Monday there was “nothing concrete” yet on such a meeting.

In an interview published last week, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi said Putin wanted to host an Israeli-Palestinian summit to revive peace talks.
