    MOSCOW, February 9 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Foreign Ministry called on Israel and Palestine Thursday to continue to work on the road map peace plan to resolve the conflict in the Middle East.

    "Although the road map is a long way from being implemented, it would be counter-productive to abandon it," Ambassador-at-Large Alexander Kalugin told a news conference in Moscow.

    He said it was necessary to wait until a new government had been formed in Palestine and elections had been held in Israel.

    Kalugin said it would be unreasonable to make demands of Palestine alone.

    "It takes two hands to clap, so Israel must meet Palestine halfway," the diplomat said.
