Moscow Accuses US of Blocking Mideast Quartet Efforts

Source: RIA Novosti

MOSCOW, December 9 (RIA Novosti) – The United States is blocking a meeting of the Quartet of Middle East mediators, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Sunday.

“We are seeking the convocation of the Quartet of international mediators. We are supported by the European Union and the UN while the United States, the fourth participant in this mechanism, does not want this. We are talking about this publicly,” Lavrov said.

Russia also advocates convening an international conference on a nuclear-free area in the Middle East but this initiative is also being blocked by the United States, Lavrov said.

“It was decided to hold this conference by late 2012. We are bearing the brunt of work with the Arabs, Israel and Iran. As a result, we have prepared a package quite acceptable for all but the Americans refused to support it,” Lavrov said.

3. Just common sense not to make many big decisions before 12/22/2012.

4. Yeah,

 

and I also see the U.S. just got blamed for conducting a nuclear test by the Iranians and Japanese. What is the problem with our Government! And how much did it cost? We need to doc their pay! They need to cut back on their warmongering!

5. More interesting is that our MSM made not a mention of this "test". Bless the 'net' and foreign

media, with its 'warts and all'.
