23rd March 2011, Comments 0 comments

Russia on Wednesday called a Jerusalem bus bombing that killed one person and injured 30 a "barbaric act of terror" that must not be allowed to destabilise the Middle East peace process.

"Moscow most resolutely condemns this barbaric act of terror, the organisers and the executors of this crime against civilians," the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement.

"In the emerging situation, it is important to do everything to avoid a destabilisation of the situation in the Middle East," the statement added.

"We cannot allow destructive forces to undermine international and regional efforts aimed at achieving a just Palestinian-Israeli settlement."
