PARIS, June 29. /TASS/. Russia and France are unanimous in their opinion that additional international efforts are needed for the Mideast peace settlement, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after talks with his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault on Wednesday.
"We’re unanimous that additional efforts of the international community are needed on the track of the Mideast settlement," Lavrov said.
"The relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council, the Arab Peace Initiative and the Madrid Principles remain its legal basis," the Russian foreign minister said.
"We positively viewed the ministerial meeting on the Palestinian-Israeli settlement held in Paris in early June and exchanged opinions on the report, which is being prepared by representatives of the Mideast Quartet - Russia, the United States, the United Nations and the European Union - with the evaluation of the situation on the track of negotiations," the Russian foreign minister said.
