Russia: Lavrov slams US ‘unilateral’ approach during intra-Palestinian reconciliation talks
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov heavily criticised what he called the US’ “unilateral approach to Palestine during intra-Palestinian reconciliation talks in Moscow on Tuesday. “We see a major threat in the position of the US, which seeks to promote unilateral approaches,” he said. “They have been promising for more than two years to offer some sort of deal of the century. But current information gives us reason to believe that the future deal of the century would ruin everything that has been done so far,” Lavrov added. Russia invited 10 Palestinian parties, including rival factions Fatah and Hamas, to Moscow to facilitate a dialogue between the groups and ultimately restoring unity. The talks will last until Wednesday.
