Moscow does not admit threats against Arafat

Moscow considers threats against legal Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat inadmissible.

Russia is concerned about Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's statement that he is free from his former promise not to physically hurt Arafat, official spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Yakovenko said on Saturday.

"We would like to confirm Russia's resolute position on the inadmissibility of such threats against the legal Palestinian leader acknowledged by the international community," Mr. Yakovenko stressed.

"We call on the Israeli leadership to observe international law, including provisions of the 4th Geneva convention, and to resume political dialogue with the Palestinian authorities on the basis of the road map worked out by Russia, the US, EU, and UN," he said.
