MOSCOW, January 17 (KATAKAMI.COM / Itar-Tass) –The Palestinian Authority should take into account the position of HAMAS, presidential aide Sergei Prikhodko said.

He believes that the Middle East conflict can be resolved “through political dialogue and by taking into account the position of HAMAS.”

“We think it necessary to take into account the real situation because HAMAS is a real political force, and everyone should heed them, at least to the degree to which they reflect the opinion of their voters,” the aide said ahead of President Dmitry Medvedev’s upcoming visit to the Palestinian Authority slated for January 18.  (*)
