China Backs Full Sovereignty For Palestine, Says Xi Jinping

Date:

Chinese leader calls for ceasefire in Gaza, says war cannot continue indefinitely in the blocaded enclave, emphasising need for “broad-based” peace conference to resolve conflict between Israel and Palestine.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has said that China firmly supports establishment of an independent Palestine state enjoying full sovereignty and the Palestinians’ bid to become a full member state of the United Nations, according to the state media.

The Chinese leader reiterated a call for an “urgent” ceasefire in the besieged Palestinian enclave and warned on Thursday that justice in the Middle East cannot be “absent forever”. “The Middle East is a land bestowed with broad prospects for development… justice should not be absent forever,” Xi told Arab leaders at the China-Arab States Cooperation Forum in Beijing, according to a foreign ministry readout, calling for “a more broad-based, authoritative and effective international peace conference”.

The Chinese leader noted that a “broad-based” peace conference is needed to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, as he hailed his “deep sense of affinity” with the Arab states, and the need for deepening ties with the region.
