Baku. Ziya Agazade – APA. The next meeting of the international mediators of the Middle East conflict may be held in Moscow in February, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.

According to APA citing “Ria Novosti”, Lavrov said Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, who is currently on a three-day visit to Russia and has met with President Dmitry Medvedev, "welcomed our initiative to hold a Quartet meeting as early as next month."

Russia, along with the UN, the United States and European Union, is part of the Middle East Quartet of intermediaries for peace efforts.

According to Lavrov, the Quartet meeting on the foreign minister level will focus on the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, which have seen a lack of progress due to the Israeli Jewish outpost expansion in the West Bank.

Lavrov said the Russian and Palestinian leaders agreed that "this [the resumption of talks] is possible only through a collective effort, based on a solid international legal basis, in strict accordance with the provisions of the previous Quartet agreements, and most importantly UN Security Council resolutions."

Russia has been seeking to host international Mideast peace talks in Moscow for more than a year.
