Russia consistently supports efforts to reach a swift resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in accordance with international law, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.
In a message to participants in an international seminar in support of peace between Palestinians and Israelis, Lavrov said: "Mutually acceptable accords should ensure creation of an independent, territorially integral and viable Palestinian state that would co-exist in peace and security with Israel."
Russia welcomes the Palestinian leadership’s continued willingness to find a negotiated solution to the conflict, Lavrov said in his message, read out by Alexander Pankin, head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Department of International Organisations.
