    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov discussed the development of the Russian-Palestinian relations with Palestinian Ambassador to Russia Abdel Hafiz Nofal, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

    "The meeting was focused on the prospects of the Palestinian-Israeli settlement, including the adoption of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, the development of the restoring Palestinian unity. The talks also covered some practical issues of further development of the Russian-Palestinian relations," the statement said.

    The resolution states that Israel should immediately and completely cease all settlement activities on "occupied Palestinian territory," including in East Jerusalem.
