Last month, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov remarked that the chances of Israel and Palestine resuming direct talks were "close to zero".

Meanwhile, Netanyahu indicated Monday that he has been engaged in discussions with the US about potentially annexing settlements in the West Bank and bringing them under Israeli law.

"I don't know anything about it", Adelson said when asked about the upcoming announcement of whether Netanyahu will be indicted. He called for suspending recognition of Israel.
