Report: Arafat to Travel to Moscow Friday
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat will begin a three-day visit to Moscow on Friday, the ITAR-TASS news agency reported Thursday citing informed sources.
Arafat appealed to President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday for Russia, a co-sponsor of the stalled Middle East peace process, to help end two months of violence that has left more than 250 dead in Israel and the Palestinian territories.
However, the Russian foreign ministry and the Palestinian embassy in Moscow declined Thursday to confirm Arafat's November 24-26 visit -- MOSCOW (AFP)
