Russia: Lavrov criticises US decision to move Israeli embassy to Jerusalem

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov criticised the US decision to move its Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem during a press conference with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry in Moscow on Monday. “We reiterate publicly our negative assessment of this decision,” Lavrov said, adding that “all issues regarding the final Palestinian-Israeli settlement and Jerusalem’s status... Еще, Jerusalem’s destiny are the most important issues and can only be solved through direct dialogue between the Israeli and Palestinian leaderships.” “As you know Russia repeatedly offers its services, its territory for such a direct dialogue to help it get started and our offer still stands,” Lavrov said. Talking about the alleged chemical attack on Douma last month, the minister said “I think we have succeeded in showing that what had happened in Douma on 7 April was staged despite all these efforts of our colleagues to justify their illegitimate act.” “It was not only a strike against the territory but also against the process of a political settlement of the Syrian crisis based on the background that was established during the Astana process and Sochi Congress,” he concluded.
