“Washington’s stubborn desire to monopolize crisis management considerably exacerbates the situation. Once again, we call on the Palestinians to overcome their differences and take urgent steps to ensure national unity on the political platform of the Palestine Liberation Organization, which involves a negotiated settlement with Israel,” stressed the Russian Foreign Ministry.
