VIENNA - 8 December 2017: Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said about Washington’s plans to make a "deal of the century" to settle the Israeli-Palestinian problem that US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had told him at a meeting, TASS news agency reported Friday.

According to Lavrov, the secretary of state "hinted that the US expects to sign the deal of the century that would solve the Israeli-Palestinian problem at a stroke."

"Naturally, we would like to understand how it will look like," the Russian foreign minister said at a press conference on the outcome of participation in the OSCE Ministerial Council meeting.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump had tweeted a video, showing number of the latest presidents of the United States speaking about Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel.

He tweeted earlier today "I fulfilled my campaign promise – others didn’t!". (MENA)
