Russia: US embassy move to Jerusalem worsens Israeli-Palestine conflict — Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nikolay Mladenov agreed that the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to relocate their embassy to the disputed city exacerbates the Israeli-Palestine conflict, speaking in Moscow on Friday. The Foreign Minister stated that at the same time «disturbing attempts are being... Еще made to change the configuration of the entire geopolitical map of the Middle East and North Africa in such a way so as to push the Palestinian problem to the background.» According to Lavrov, Moscow stands for the Middle East Quartet — the UN, Russia, the EU and the USA — to take a “maximally active role” in the peace process. Mladenov on his part, said the UN is concerned about the upcoming relocation of the US embassy and the ongoing protests in the Gaza Strip.
