  • China urges intl. community to stick to two-state solution to Palestine issue

China has thrown its weight behind the Palestinian people's just cause to restore their legitimate rights, calling on the international community to adhere to the so-called “two-state solution” to the decades-long conflict in the region.

Chinese President Xi Jinping made the remarks in a message sent to a UN meeting on Tuesday, marking the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

Xi described the issue of Palestine as a root problem in West Asia.

He also asked the international community to adhere to the right direction of the so-called “two-state solution” and make efforts towards regional peace based on relevant UN resolutions and the "land for peace" principle.

China attaches great importance to the Palestine issue, Xi said, adding that his country supports the just cause of the Palestinian people to restore their legitimate rights as well as efforts aimed at the peaceful of the conflict.

He further noted that under current circumstances, the international community should pay more attention to the grave challenges brought by the coronavirus outbreak to Palestine and help the nation fight against the pandemic.

Beijing has provided multiple batches of anti-COVID-19 aid to Palestine through multilateral and bilateral channels and will continue to offer as much assistance as its capacity allows, the Chinese president emphasized.

He also voiced China’s readiness to continue its work with the international community to help settle the Palestine issue through a comprehensive, fair and permanent solution, and make positive contributions to an early realization of peace, stability and development in the region.
