- Story Text:Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev began a three-day trip to the region with a visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City early on Thursday (November 10).
Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch welcomed Medvedev to Judaism's holiest prayer site.
Later on Thursday, Medvedev will meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is also due to meet with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin at his residence in Jerusalem.
On Friday (November 11), Medvedev is due to meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank city of Jericho.
In September, Russia proposed to host a meeting between Abbas and Netanyahu but it has not yet come to fruition.
Russian and Israeli leaders have met many times over the past two years in an effort to avoid military mishaps in Syria where Russia is involved in the fighting.
