OIC: Washington is an unreliable mediator in the Middle East settlement process

The Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Iyad Madani, has said that the United States has so far failed to be an effective mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian settlement process.

During a joint press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held in Moscow on Thursday, Madani said that Russia is capable of playing an effective and balanced role in achieving stability in the world.

Madani noted that the US is not a serious mediator in the Middle East.

The head of the OIC criticised Washington for not considering Palestinians and Israelis as equals in the negotiations process, adding that this makes the United States an ineffective mediator in the peace process.
