Russia criticizes new construction in settlements

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov criticized Israel's decision to construct 1,000 new housing units in the settlements. Lavrov said: "Moscow is deeply concerned about the intent to build in occupied Palestinian territories, which are not recognized by Russia and the international community."


Lavrov further added: "Taking this step on the eve of the renewal of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians is not effective and does not aid the process." (AFP)
