A high-level Hamas delegation visited Moscow at the invitation of the Russian government, the Palestinian resistance group said on Tuesday.

Hamas made the announcement while emphasizing its position among major world powers. Russia and China have good ties with Hamas even though it is designated as a terrorist organization by Israel and its western allies.

The deputy head of the movement’s political bureau, Saleh Al-Arouri, confirmed the details of the official visit to Moscow.

“The leadership of the movement visited Moscow and met [Foreign Minister] Sergey Lavrov,” Al-Arouri is reported to be saying.

“It was an important visit that highlights the role of the movement with many global actors.”

The Hamas official did not specify when the visit to Moscow took place, saying it happened “recently”. He then talked about the possibility of another international tour “in the coming weeks.”
