Hours after President of the Palestinian National Authority Mahmoud Abbas denied the claims that a meeting between him and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was scheduled to take place in Moscow, Netanyahu clarified today (Tuesday) that he was willing to meet with Abu Mazen at any place, including in Moscow.

During a visit to Holland, Netanyahu explained that he was ready to meet with Abu Mazen but stressed that the question remained as to whether he would be willing to hold a meeting without any preconditions.

Earlier today, Abu Mazen clarified that he was not scheduled to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister. “President Putin suggested holding a meeting in Moscow on the 9th of September,” he stated during a joint press conference with the Russian President in Warsaw. “I agreed and was willing to go to Moscow directly from here but yesterday, in a conversation with the Russian envoy (to the Middle East), Netanyahu asked to postpone the meeting and so there will not be a meeting this week.”

Meanwhile, Netanyahu announced today that he will cooperate with the Dutch government in building and establishing a gas pipeline to Gaza. According to Netanyahu, the Security Cabinet of Israel decided to “improve the supply of energy and water to Gaza, including through placing a gas pipeline.”
