Israel must stop the occupation of the Palestinian territories, Russia’s permanent representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya stated on Friday.

“I fully agree that the time has come to end the occupation; we have been talking about this constantly,” Nebenzya began.

“The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is in fact the key to solving all other conflicts in the Middle East. What is happening around the resolution of the conflict is not encouraging,” he continued.

According to him, if no solution is accepted that would satisfy both sides, the situation will remain “a source of instability in the Middle East.”

“Regarding our warm relations with Israel – yes, we are very lucky, we are friends with all countries in the Middle East, without exception, unlike other countries, unfortunately,” Nebenzya stated.

Russia has called on both the Palestinians and Israelis to return to the negotiations table in order to halt the violence and establish a peaceful solution to the ongoing turmoil.

Problem : it’s the Palestinian leaders that refuse any peace. Hey, Palestinian “parliament” has a Muslim Brotherhood (Hamas) majority. Any way, PLO ain’t better! Hamas are nazislamists and even want to invade Russia and well, the whole world. Vasily Nebenzya should give a call to Putin : Putin already told a journo that if he wanted to be circumcised, he knew of a clinic doing wonderful job at it… There are nice Saudi online shops selling high quality niqabs for his wife too… The only solution to satisfy both Hamas and PLO is to push all the Jews into the… Read more »
