A spokesman for the Russian presidency said on Sunday that the Middle East peace plan put forward by US President Donald Trump contrasted several UN resolutions.
The Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said: "We see the reaction of the Palestinians and we see the reaction of a large group of Arab countries that stood by the Palestinians in rejecting the plan. This, of course, gives reason for thinking about its feasibility," Reuters news agency reported.
The Palestinian Authority severed all ties with the United States and Israel, including on security, after it rejected the US peace plan.
Earlier, Peskov said that Russia was conducting an analysis and study of the plan prepared by the White House administration.
Peskov pointed out that "the initial observation is that the plan was supported by Israel, and supported by a number of other countries, but it found a categorical rejection by Palestine, the party directly involved."
Before Trump gave his speech on the peace plan, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Russia needs first to know the positions of all parties concerned, pointing to the possibility of the Quartet of international mediators to settle the Middle East involved in studying the American plan.
The US peace plan states that "Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel", and this is in addition to the necessity for the Palestinians to meet many conditions before they can establish their state.
Trump's plan also calls for Palestinian refugees to be able to return to a Palestinian state in the future and create a "generous compensation fund."
The plan also included "connecting the proposed Palestinian state with roads, bridges and tunnels in order to connect Gaza and the West Bank."
