UNITED NATIONS, September 27 (Itar-Tass) - The Syrian crisis must not overshadow the Palestinian problem, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday at the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly and called to give a fresh impetus to the activities of the Quartet.
He expressed the hope that Israeli and Palestinian leaders would show responsibility for the future of their nations at the current critical stage when the parties had resumed direct talks after a long break.
Giving credit to the U.S. efforts in the area of the Middle East settlement, Lavrov said it was necessary to give an impetus to the activities of the Quartet, which was an internationally recognized mechanism to promote the peace process in the region on the basis of the U.N. resolutions, the Madrid principles and the Arab peace initiative. He also spoke in favour of more close involvement of Arab countries.
