MOSCOW, March 21 (Itar-Tass) — Palestine believes that it is unreasonable to resume talks with Israel until Israel continues the policy towards expanding its settlements, Palestinian Ambassador to Russian Fayed Mustafa said.
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, “Earlier, we said we would resume the talks only on certain terms. We believe that it is unreasonable, impossible and unjustified to resume talks when Israel continues its auction sales of plots of land.”
“Israel continues the construction of new settlements on the occupied Palestinian territories. Israel is trying to overpass time in order to solve the problem de facto before the talks start,” the ambassador said.
Commenting on the Syrian problem, Mustafa noted, “Palestine praises the role of Syria in the past, present and future of the Arab world.” “We are saddened about the events in Syria. This country plays a key role in the Arab-Israeli conflict that is why we want the Syrian friends to overcome their grave crisis,” the Palestinian ambassador to Russia stressed.
