Gennady Zyuganov, Leader Of Russian Communists, Speaks For Intensification Of Russia's Role In Middle East

Gennady Zyuganov, leader of the parliamentary CPRF faction, spoke out in favour of the intensification of Russia's role in the Middle East, noting that "there are no serious obstacles in its way." Receiving a group of journalists from Arab countries on Tuesday, Zyuganov noted that the Russian government "should more actively develop its relations with Arab countries." The CPRF leader expressed himself in support of the "Palestinian people who have the lawful right to create a state of their own." He believes that Russia ought to take such a stand in the UN Security Council and the Human Rights Committee "to restore justice in the Middle East." Zyuganov also stressed that "related UN resolutions should undoubtedly be carried out." The leader of the Communists addressed former Russian citizens who left Russia for Israel and have not taken up arms to participate in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. He said "it is hopeless to fight against a nation that struggles for its lawful rights and for the creation of its own sovereign state." Zyuganov pointed out that "we should be guided by the principles of good-neighbourliness and live in peace with our neighbours. Then peace will come to every home."
