Kremlin says fears US Jerusalem embassy opening to fuel M. East tensions

The Kremlin said on Monday it feared the opening of a US embassy in Jerusalem, a move that has delighted Israel and infuriated Palestinians, would increase tensions in the Middle East.

 

"Yes, we have such fears," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call, when asked if the Kremlin was concerned the move could increase tensions in the wider region.
