According to the Russian diplomacy, all possible practical measures were reviewed during Sunday’s video conference in order to defuse the situation as much as possible, establish a ceasefire and protect the civilian population.
The need for strict observance of International Humanitarian Law was also mentioned.
Russia called to create political conditions to solve the crisis and resume the negotiations between the parties on the basis of the resolutions approved by the United Nations Security Council and General Assembly on the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
Moscow reiterated that the matters related to the definitive status of those territories must take into account those decisions, which include the principle of two States: Israel and Palestine, for them to coexist peacefully and safely, according to the statement issued by the Kremlin.
The diplomats stressed the urgency of holding a meeting of the quartet at the ministry level and organizing another consultation with the leading Arab countries, in addition to Israel and Palestine.
