Medvedev urges ‘reasonable’ Israel settlement decision

There will be no progress in Middle East peace talks without a “reasonable” Israel decision on Jewish settlement activity, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday.

“It is obvious that without some sort of reasonable (Israeli) decision concerning their settlement activity, there will be no progress,” the Russian leader said during a press conference with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas in the West Bank town of Jericho.

“It is impossible to close your eyes to this fact.”
