The representative of China called on the international community to make efforts to promote the Middle East peace process

On November 18, the UN Security Council held an open video conference on the situation in the Middle East and the Palestinian question to hear a briefing from the Special Coordinator for the Middle East peace process, Mr. mladnoff. Zhang Jun, China’s permanent representative to the United Nations, attended the meeting and expounded China’s position. < p > < p > Zhang Jun said that the Palestinian issue is the root cause of unrest in the Middle East, and the international community should firmly promote a political solution based on the “two state plan”. The relevant resolutions of the United Nations, the principle of land for peace and the “two-state plan” have accumulated the wisdom and efforts of several generations. They are the important basis for the settlement of the Palestinian issue and must be observed and implemented. China supports the settlement of the occupied territory in the West Bank in accordance with the relevant UN resolutions and the demarcation of the final border between Palestine and Israel through peaceful negotiations. It calls on all parties concerned not to take unilateral actions that lead to intensified contradictions, especially to abandon the annexation plan and stop settlement activities in the occupied territory. < p > < p > Zhang Jun said that efforts to promote international peace should be further coordinated and promoted. The international community, especially the countries that have influence on Palestine and Israel, should uphold an objective and just position, actively encourage peace and promote talks, and make sincere efforts to promote the Middle East peace process. Any initiative or program on the Palestinian issue must listen to the voices of regional countries and organizations, especially the Palestinian side, and take into account the concerns of all parties. A plan to break away from the “track” of Middle East peace will not bring lasting peace, and it will not work to impose it on others. < p > < p > Zhang Jun said that people should be the center to improve the economic and humanitarian situation in Palestine. China calls for the implementation of Security Council resolution 2334 to stop the demolition of Palestinian houses and destruction of Palestinian property and prevent violence against civilians. The new epidemic has brought a serious impact on the economic and social development of Palestine. We welcome the Palestinian decision to resume security and civilian cooperation with Israel. The international community should respond to the appeal of secretary general Guterres, fulfill its commitments and increase its support for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees in the Near East. The “health package” donated by China to the Palestine refugees has arrived in the countries concerned and will be distributed to the Palestine refugees in Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria through the agency’s channels. The anti epidemic materials provided by the Chinese side to the medical institutions under the agency have also been successively shipped by sea. < / P > < p > Zhang Jun said that as a sincere friend of the Palestinian people, China firmly supports the just demands of the Palestinian side and supports the establishment of a fully sovereign and independent Palestinian state based on the 1967 border with East Jerusalem as its capital. We will continue to help the Palestinian side fight the epidemic, develop the economy and improve people’s livelihood within our ability, and continue to make positive contributions to the realization of an early, comprehensive, just and lasting settlement of the Palestinian issue.
