Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov suggested making the Road Map binding for Israel and Palestine.

"Russia appeals once again to all participants of the conflict to return to a political dialogue in the context of the Road Map," announced the Russian foreign minister in an interview with journalists on Tuesday.

"We also believe it necessary that the UN Security Council adopts the Road Map as its mandatory plan of actions," said Mr. Ivanov.

He said that Russia considers convocation of an international conference on the Middle East settlement a necessary step toward the solution of the crisis.

"All these measures are aimed at one goal - to stop the present spiral of violence and to return the political solution of the situation in the Middle East," underlined the minister.
