Russia: Middle East issues remain despite Israel deal

Russian Foreign Ministry stressed on Thursday the crisis in the Middle East would not be solved until the Palestine question is despite the peace agreement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain.

"In this regard, we call on regional and international partners to intensify coordinated efforts in this important area," the ministry's statement read. "We proceed from the fact that, as the leaders of Bahrain and the UAE declare, these states remain fully committed to the settlement of the Palestinian problem on the [...] international legal basis, as well as in accordance with the Arab Peace Initiative."

Earlier this month, Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain agreed to normalize their mutual relations and signed a peace agreement at the White House.
