MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. Palestinian-Israeli situation demand emergency settlement and that is why the meeting between the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, and the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, that is due to take place in Rome on Sunday was coordinated literally within hours, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS on Saturday.
“We think the situation is quite alarming again,” he said. “The surge of violence that took away hundreds of human lives this summer became a tragic reminder of the fact one should care for peace settlement all the time and intensively.”
“Russia has never rejected fruitful participation in appropriate efforts,” he said. “We bear a due share of responsibility for furnishing the parties to that conflict with an acceptable solution.”
“I’ll refrain from surmising about the kind of agreements and decisions that can be reached in Rome,” Ryabkov said when the reporter asked him about it. “Still there is a feeling of urgency and that’s why the meeting was coordinated literally over several hours.”
Lavrov and Kerry discussed Palestinian-Israeli settlement in a telephone conversation on Friday. They stressed the importance of “coordinated measures for facilitation of an earliest possible resumption of peace talks that would rely on the commonly accepted norms of law.
Sunday’s meeting in Rome between Lavrov and Kerry will be the fourteenth one this year.
