Lavrov: Medvedev’s Palestine visit 'not revenge'
“The visit took place. I can assure you that speculation that President Medvedev decided to go to Palestine as revenge for not being received by Israel have absolutely nothing to do with reality and smell of a very nasty provocation,” – Lavrov said.
“For known reasons, Israeli diplomats categorically refused service to any foreign visitors. But visits to Palestine and Jordan aren’t serviced by Israeli diplomats, so they took place,” – explained the minister.
