Russia invites Palestinian factions to meet in Moscow

Russia has invited Palestinian factions to meet in Moscow on 26 February, according to the Palestinian Authority prime minister.

"Russia has invited all Palestinian factions who will be meeting on the 26th of this month in Moscow. We will see if Hamas is ready to come to the ground with us," Mohammad Shtayyeh told the Munich Security Conference on Sunday. 

"We are ready to engage. If Hamas is not then that's a different story. We need Palestinian unity," Shtayyeh said.

He added that to be part of that unity, Hamas would need to meet certain prerequisites.
