The People’s Republic of China said it would continue its efforts with various parties to push forward the resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli issue fully and fairly as soon as possible and to achieve peace and stability in the Middle East.
China’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Liu Jiei told a press briefing on Wednesday.
The Chinese diplomat called on the Palestinian and Israeli sides to exercise restraint and take practical steps to resume peace negotiations and achieve a “two-state solution” as soon as possible.
The establishment of a fully sovereign Palestinian state on the basis of the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital is truly the right of the Palestinian people and a key to resolving the Palestinian issue and bringing peace.
Liu said China firmly supports the just cause of the Palestinian people and called on the parties concerned to push forward the peace process based on the principle of “land for peace”, “two-state solution”, the Arab peace initiative and relevant UN Security Council resolutions.
