Russia says Jewish settlements undermine Mideast peace prospects
Moscow, Jan 13 (Petra) –– Russia said on Saturday that Israel's building of new Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank would not help breathe new life into the moribund peace process with the Palestinians.

The Russian foreign ministry said in a statement posted on its website that settlement construction is not conducive to creating the conditions to hold direct negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians through which to find a solution to all final status issues.

The ministry reiterated that Israel's policy of building homes in the Palestinian territories, including in East Jerusalem, is illegitimate.

It is also obvious that Israel's pursuit of settlement building would undermine the horizons for solving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on the two-state solution, and would curtail the prospects of achieving a just peace in the Middle East, the statement warned.
