The Israeli Daily Yediot Ahranot has revealed that communications are underway by Russian President, Vladimir Putin, to bring Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, and Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, together in October.
The meeting will take place in Moscow to resume peace talks between Palestinians and Israelis.
The newspaper asserted that Abbas still insists on freezing settlement activities in the West Bank and on setting a date to end Israeli occupation in order to move peace talks forward.
Peace talks between Palestinians and Israelis began in 1993 following the signing of the Oslo Accords, yet failed to reach a solution that leads to ending the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Today, some 700,000 Israeli settlers live in the West Bank.
