  • Russia warns of 'new wave' of ME tensions after US Golan move
Sharjah 24 – AFP: Moscow said it feared "a new wave of tensions" in the Middle East following the decision by Washington to recognise Israeli occupation sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights, which are claimed by Russian ally Syria.
"Unfortunately, this could drive a new wave of tensions in the Middle East region," Russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a radio broadcast, according to Russian news agencies.
