He further mentioned two other proposals on behalf of his country, Russia noting: "All the resolutions regarding Palestine that have not been implemented by the United Nations should be removed, and a new resolution for Palestine should be determined without Israel's intervention, which means that Palestine should not be divided into two countries, but become a united single country."

He went on to conclude: "The next issue is Al-Quds, which should not be the center of the Zionists, and in the world arena, the capital must be determined for Palestine, and if Israel does not fulfill its obligations, I am sure that we will witness the destruction of Israel."
