    Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the Israeli-Palestinian peace proces during held phone talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Kremlin’s press service said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier this month, the Israeli prime minister visited Moscow to discuss a wide range of international issues, including Syria, with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    "Further development of mutually beneficial Russian-Israeli cooperation was discussed in light of Benjamin Netanyahu’s official visit to Russia on June 7. Key aspects of the Palestinian-Israeli settlement were also considered," the press service said.

    Palestinians seek recognition for their independent state on the territories of West Bank as well as East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip. The Israeli government denies Palestine's claims, refusing to diplomatically recognize the existence of a Palestinian state. Peace talks between the sides are consistently deadlocked.
