Representatives of the Palestinian groups Fatah and Hamas on Monday agreed a joint statement with Russia, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
The leaders of Fatah and Hamas, as well as of the People's and Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Palestinian People's Party, Al-Shaabare, met with Lavrov earlier in the day in Moscow.
The statement will help "implement the Cairo accords," Lavrov said, adding that PNA President Mahmoud Abbas had already expressed his satisfaction.
"All Palestinian movements should participate in the formation of a Palestinian government," Lavrov said, adding that the agreements could help establish a Palestinian state.
The Palestinians want the borders of their future state to be formed within the borders that existed before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
Fatah and Hamas signed a peace deal in Egypt's capital Cairo on May 4 to end their four-year rift.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the accord was a "tremendous blow to peace and a great victory for terrorism," urging Abbas to choose peace with Israel rather than reconciliation with Hamas.
