Israel’s Foreign Ministry summoned Russian Ambassador Anatoly Viktorov on Wednesday over his remarks to a local newspaper. 

“The problem in the region is not Iranian activities,” Viktorov said Tuesday in an interview with The Jerusalem Post.

“It’s a lack of understanding between countries and noncompliance with UN resolutions in the Israel-Arab and Israel-Palestinian conflict”.

Neither the Israeli authorities nor the Russian Embassy in Israel have issued a statement regarding the development.
