Russia Offers to Mediate Israel-Gaza Negotiations, Putin Says ‘no Alternative’ to 2-state Solution
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced his offer of Russia acting as a mediating power in negotiations between Israel and Hamas militants during a Kyrgyzstan summit on Friday.
“What matters now is to stop the bloodshed,” Putin stated.
Putin previously attributed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a result of U.S. foreign policy in reference to settlements in Israel.
“Settlement mechanisms have been established, but the United States has neglected these mechanisms over the past few years and decided to regulate everything on its own, did not use these mechanisms and in recent years has relied on meeting the material needs of the population living in the Palestinian territories,” Putin said during a forum with Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Sudani on Wednesday.”

Putin said Russia is prepared to coordinate with all ‘constructive partners’
Russia is offering itself as a mediating power in negotiations between Israel and Hamas militants.
President Vladimir Putin offered the nation’s help during a Kyrgyzstan summit on Friday as Israeli ground invasions are expected in northern Gaza.
“What matters now is to stop the bloodshed,” Putin said.
The president told summit attendees that “Russia is ready to coordinate with all constructive partners.”
Palestinians are fleeing south after the Israeli government ordered the evacuation of northern Gaza amid beginning raids on the region.
Putin has previously blamed the U.S. for the unfolding violence in the Middle East following a Hamas-initiated terror attack last week.
