Russia finds worrisome Israel’s law legalizing settlements, outposts

MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Moscow finds worrisome Israel’s just-adopted act legalizing settlements and outposts created with government support on private Palestinian territories in the West Bank of River Jordan, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a commentary.

"Moscow finds Israel’s decision very worrisome," the Foreign Ministry said. "It may certainly have the most negative effects on the chances of achieving a lasting and firm Palestinian-Israeli settlement. As a matter of fact, the outlook for implementing a two-state solution of the Palestinian problem is in question."
