Jan 18 (KATAKAMI.COM / IsraelNationalNews.Com) — The Palestinian Authority (PA) is preparing for a visit by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Jericho on Wednesday.
The PA police force and the rest of its security apparatus finished their preparations on Monday. Jericho’s mayor, police chief and regional governor toured the width and breadth of the city Monday to view the preparations for receiving the visiting dignitary in a respectable, if not fancy way.
During the Middle East trip, which starts on Tuesday, Medvedev will be visiting Jordan, as well as the PA.
His visit to Israel was cancelled because of employee sanctions at the foreign ministry. The Voice of Russia website says that Medvedev will meet President Shimon Peres during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in February. (*)
