Russia: Economic part of deal of the century contradicts UNSC resolutions

MEMO | July 4, 2019

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said yesterday that the economic part of the US deal of the century contradicts UN Security Council resolutions, TASS reported.

Following a meeting with the Secretary-General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Yousef Al-Othaimeen, he said: “Without seeing the comprehensive US vision of the settlement, it is very difficult to draw any conclusions.”

“But on a preliminary basis, I can say that the economic part proposes investing about $50 billion, half of the amount in Palestine, and the remaining $25 billion in the infrastructure of the countries where Palestinian refugees have lived for many years now.”

“If this is targeted at the refugees staying there for good and the countries will receive these financial injections to this end, then this alone contradicts the decisions of the UN Security Council, which among other things stipulate [establishing] such a Palestinian state.”

Lavrov stressed that the future Palestinian state “will be competent and will welcome refugees from the countries where they are hosted now, primarily, Lebanon, Egypt and a number of others.”

He concluded: “Therefore, we would like our American colleagues to finally explain their plan completely, instead of revealing their ideas piece by piece.”

  1. Wellll. I have utmost respect for FM Lavrov…but will he/Russia put/keep pressure on the USrael+KSA thug-empire and ensure that the Palestinians have a principled, strong voice in influencing what is after all Palestine’s destiny? I can’t but be skeptical…will be looking for more news in the coming days/weeks…..

    (Why doesn’t Russia, e.g., given its “contradicts UN Security Council resolutions” position, call an immediate session of the UNSC and push-push-push to effect proper application of international law? I’m skeptical — and cynical — and doubtful — that it will. Prove me wrong, Russia!)
