MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Last week, Paris hosted an international conference of 28 delegations aimed at the resumption of the stalled Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. The conference's participants assessed the situation that involved possible risks for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Representatives of neither Israel nor Paris were present at the event.
"We will also receive very soon French special envoy Pierre Vimont and he also will inform us about the discussions and will elaborate on what are the prospects of France on how to continue, plus we will be speaking to all Arabs who attended the meeting to comprehend all the details," Maliki said on Wednesday.
The settlements issue is considered to be one of the major irritants in the relations of Israel with the international community and one of the main obstacles to reach peace with the Palestinians.
