Russia slams Israeli decision to build new housing units in O. Jerusalem

[ 13/08/2011 – 09:29 AM ]

MOSCOW, (PIC)– Russia criticized on Friday the Israeli government’s endorsement of building 1600 new settlement units in occupied Jerusalem, warning that it would lead to worsening the already “explosive Middle East peace process”.

The Russian foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Ukashević said in a statement that the decision to build those new units would raise “serious concerns”.

He described the construction of those units as “illegitimate” and ran contrary to international efforts seeking an acceptable formula for both parties to resume negotiations.

The official Israeli authorization for building those units was censured by the European Union, the USA, and now Russia.
