Lavrov: US neglects peace agreement over Middle-East conflict

The United States neglects the way to resolve the Middle East conflict that was accepted by other governments. Thus, the American authorities make the milieus remain at the deadlock, Sputnik cited Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

«The US, in its usual manner, has offered to resolve one of the most long-lasting conflicts of our time ‘in one go’. At the same time, Washington has essentially ignored the universally recognised international legal basis for a Middle East settlement, which includes resolutions of the Security Council and the UN General Assembly; and the Arab Peace Initiative,» the Russian diplomat said.

Sergey Lavrov claimed that the recently forwarded US peace plan hampers the resolution of the Palestinian conflict supporting the side of Israel.

«Such an approach is unlikely to help rectify the situation. This is also indicated by the fact that the so-called ‘deal of the century’ is being completely rejected by the Palestinians,» he added.
