Russia urges Israel to reconsider settlement expansion

Published: 12.03.12, 13:08 / Israel News

Russia urged Israel on Monday to reconsider plans to expand Jewish settlements on occupied land after Palestinians won de facto UN recognition of statehood, saying building new homes would undermine any chance for direct peace talks.

 

In a statement issued a day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushed off condemnation from the US and European nations, Russia also criticised Israel's announcement it was withholding Palestinian tax revenues. Russia "views these Israeli intentions with the most serious concern", the Foreign Ministry statement said. (Reuters)
