MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. Moscow views the ideas of establishing international control over the Gaza Strip and dividing the enclave as unacceptable, Russian Ambassador to Israel Anatoly Viktorov said.
"Absolutely unacceptable and far-fetched ideas [are being floated] to establish international control over the Gaza Strip or divide Gaza, let alone the completely unacceptable initiatives to resettle Gaza’s population somewhere outside of the enclave in order to resolve the issue," the diplomat told the Rossiya-24 TV channel.
"The most important thing is to ensure strong international support. Clearly, the negotiation process has not stalled by itself; it reflects the real complexity of this issue, which entails a plethora of intertwined elements,"the Russian envoy added.
In this regard, Viktorov highlighted the role of the Middle East Quartet of international mediators. "We have always said that the Quartet should act in close coordination and interrelation primarily with the countries of the region, which are the ones most interested in restoring peace and stability," he noted.
