China says lack of Palestinian state is 'historical injustice'


14 April, 2017

English edition of Asharq Al-Awsat - the world's premier pan-Arab daily.

Wang added that China welcomed any country that wanted to support the region more and give more attention to the Palestine-Israel issue.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi warned on Friday that anyone who provokes war on the Korean Peninsula will assume responsibility and pay the price.

Malki briefed his Chinese counterpart on political and diplomatic efforts to revive the stalled peace process between the Palestinians and the Israelis and the US administration's peace effort ahead of the upcoming meeting between US President Donald Trump and President Mahmoud Abbas next month in Washington, expressing hope that the US would play a balanced and constructive role in the peace process.

While it has traditionally played a minor role in the region, past year China's President Xi Jinping committed US$7.6 million in aid to Palestine in a historic address to the Arab League.

"Therefore, we call upon all the parties, no matter verbally or in action, to stop provoking and threatening each other and not to allow the situation to become irretrievable and out of control", Wang said.

The minister said China opposes any actions that escalate tensions on the Korean Peninsula stressing that dialogue is the only possible solution.

"We do like to see more Chinese involvement in bringing about a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine".

Relations between Israel and Palestine have been shattered for decades.

The Middle East, however, is fraught with risk for China, a country that has little experience navigating the religious and political tensions that frequently rack the region.

China's President Xi Jinping told visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in March that peaceful coexistence between Israel and Palestine would be good for both parties and the region, and that it was favored by the worldwide community.
