The current crisis in the Middle East is the result of another failed US scheme, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told the Evening With Vladimir Solovyev TV show, APA reports.

She pointed out that the US had long been promoting "exceptional allegations" about some non-mandatory UN Security Council resolutions.

"They did everything to isolate this situation and isolate Israel from the opportunity to rely on international law only for the sake of their own American ambition. A lot was put at stake," Zakharova noted. "What did it lead to? To a crisis unseen in the region’s recent history," she said.

"I think it’s another US scheme that has failed," the Russian diplomat added.
