Israel hints that Russia would better interfere in the Near-Eastern conflict

Israeli ambassador in Moscow Natan Meron claimed Thursday that Israel would greet Russia’s assistant in the adjustment of Near-Eastern problems. He stressed that “Russia’s relationship with Palestine is traditionally good; Russia maintain contacts with Israel as well”. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak met twice, and often speak on the telephone. According to Natan Meron, these contacts could assist in the adjustment of the conflict.
