16:15 05/03/2006

MOSCOW, March 5 (RIA Novosti, Olga Lipich) - The head of the Russian Orthodox Church and the political leader of the Hamas militant group said Sunday that they intended to continue interfaith cooperation.

"We have developed traditionally good relations with the Palestinian leadership. I hope these relations will continue," Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexy II said at a meeting with a delegation of the Hamas militant movement headed by its political chief Khaled Meshaal.

Meshaal said in his turn that this desire was reciprocal.

The Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church also expressed the hope that Christians and Muslims would continue their dialog on Palestinian territory.

The delegation of the Hamas militant group, which won the Palestinian parliamentary elections on January 25, is in Moscow on the invitation of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
