    DAMASCUS, July 4 (RIA Novosti, Nadim Zuaui) - A Palestinian-Israeli peace settlement should not be restricted to Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and West Bank, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Saltanov said Monday. "Progress in the Middle East settlement should not be limited to withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and a few settlements in the West Bank," Saltanov said, adding that Russia and other Quartet members (the United States, European Union, and United Nations) agree that the settlement should not be limited to withdrawal. "The settlement needs continuity and succession," Saltanov said, "This is the only way to move from confrontation to dialog and political solutions."

    "We regard the delimitation plan as the start of implementing the roadmap, to which there is no alternative," he added.
