MOSCOW, May 14. /TASS/. Moscow and Cairo are worried over the current situation in the Gaza Strip, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday after talks in the 2+2 format involving Russian and Egyptian foreign and defense ministers.
"We expressed common concern over the situation in the Palestinian territories, in particular, in the Gaza Strip," he said.
"We reiterated commitment to the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council and General Assembly, to the principles of the Arab Peace Initiative. We, like Egypt, are worried over attempts to revise these major documents and the approaches that were approved by the world community," he stressed.
Protests erupted at the Gaza Strip border on Monday over the United States’ plans to transfer its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. According to the latest reports, at least 50 Palestinians have been killed and more than 2,000 have been hurt in clashes with the Israeli military.
