Kremlin is concerned about the possible deterioration of the situation in the event of recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the United States.
However, it is premature to comment on the decisions that have not been made yet, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
“The situation is complex”, he admitted, recalling that the issue was earlier discussed during a telephone conversation between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. “They expressed concern about the situation and its possible exacerbation,” Peskov said. “However, we do not want to talk about the decisions that have not been announced yet,” he added.
