Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov praised President Obama for offering new alternatives in dealing with Iran. He indicated Obama’s approach will assist in efforts to reach agreements with Iran. However, Lavrov also met with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman who he politely made clear to that Russia will work with other nations in pursuit of peace with Iran but would not engage in any form of military action. However, Lavrov said Russia was urging Hamas and President Abbas to cooperate in pursuit of peace.
Lieberman still does not grasp that few outside his own nation regard him as anything other than a buffoon who lacks any understanding of what must occur to bring peace to the Middle East. For some reason, voters in Israel actually believe this vicious hater of Muslims will be of any assistance in bringing peace to their nation.
