Russian and U.S. presidents discuss Moscow conference on Middle East
Presidents of Russia Dmitry Medvedev and the United States Barack Obama discussed at a meeting in the Kremlin on July 6 the Middle East settlement process, preparations for the Moscow conference on the Middle East and some other international issues, RIA Novosti reported.
"On this topic (for Middle East peace process), we agreed to work further in the light of those plans, of which we spoke, as well as we discussed the possibility of holding a Moscow conference on the Middle East," Medvedev said to a press conference after talks with Obama.
Medvedev said that the Presidents also discussed the situation in Afghanistan.
Russia expressed its readiness to host a conference on the Middle East peace settlement, which was in a state of stagnation, after the government of Benjamin Netanyahu came to power in Israel. During his visit to Egypt in June, Medvedev promised that the conference will be held by the end of this year.
