Lavrov Discusses Missiles and Magnitsky With Clinton

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday discussed NATO plans to build an anti-missile shield in Europe, the Magnitsky list and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at their first meeting since U.S. President Barack Obama's re-election on Nov. 6.

Lavrov and Clinton, who met in Cambodia on the sidelines of an event staged by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, said bilateral attempts to find a compromise on the construction of the U.S.-backed anti-missile shield would continue, Interfax reported.

The Magnitsky list is a "practically decided matter" in Washington, Lavrov said. "Clinton knows that we will reply accordingly," he said.

Russia has proposed holding an urgent meeting of the four countries who act as mediators in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But the main goal before that is to achieve a truce between Israel and Hamas, Lavrov said.
