Abbas relies on Putin: We don't trust America
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: Russia’s position [towards the Palestinians] supports justice and international law, and from our perspective that is enough. When you say: “I support the decisions of the international institutions,” this is enough for me, because that is what I want here… This is because we don't trust America, and you know our position. We don’t trust them and don’t rely on them, and we won’t accept under any circumstances to America being the sole party in resolving the problem.
