Russian President Vladimir Putin (R) and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu meet in the Kremlin, Nov. 20, 2013.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his re-election, and then he told the Arab League that the Palestinian Authority deserves Jerusalem as its future capital.

Putin’s conversation with the Prime Minister, according to the Kremlin, covered talks on coming to an agreement with Iran over its nuclear program.

On Saturday, the Russian leader addressed the Arab League Sharm el-Sheikh and said:

Palestinians have the right to establish an independent and habitable state with a capital in East Jerusalem. Russia will continue to contribute to achieving this goal through bilateral and multilateral channels.

He also stated that problems in the Middle East cannot be decided with foreign intervention. Presumably, there are exceptions, such as declaring that Israel should surrender unified Jerusalem.
