China has firmly supported the two-state solution and the establishment of an independent state of Palestine, which enjoys full sovereignty on the basis of the 1967 borders and with east Jerusalem as its capital.

This was stated by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi while talking to Ahmed Majdalani and Nabil Shaath, who came to china as representatives of the Palestinian President.

Peace in the Middle East cannot be achieved unless the Palestine issue is solved, as this issue is a root one in the region, Wang said, calling on the international community to reflect on this issue and take actions.

Wang said that this not only reflects a definite attitude to adhere to the consensus of the international community, but also voices the call for speeding up the Middle East peace process.

He called on the Palestinian side to form a united force, stick to solving disputes through dialogue, maximize the role of the United Nations and voice up the call for peace.

Majdalani and Shaath expressed gratitude for china’s support to the Palestinian people’s just cause and hoped that china will play a bigger role in the Middle East.
