Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital by the United States runs counter to common sense.

"This announcement runs counter to common sense," Lavrov told a news conference in Vienna, referring to an announcement by US President Donald Trump that Washington was recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
