Moscow, Jan 16 (KATAKAMI.COM / RIA NOVOSTI / KREMLIN.RU) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will make an official visit to Jordan and the Palestinian Territory on January 18-19, the Kremlin press service announced on Saturday.
Medvedev earlier had plans of visiting Israel on his two-day visit, however that trip was canceled due to Israeli Foreign Ministry employees calling a strike in order to get salary increases.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier this week that Israeli officials were categorically against entertaining any foreign guests during the strike.
According to some sources, Medvedev will visit Jericho in the West Bank to open a Russian museum. (*)
