Wednesday in New York, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi presided over a high-level meeting of the United Nations Security Council concerning the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Chinese FM chairs Palestinian-Israeli UN Security Council meeting.
Wang Yi reaffirmed the nation’s position on the Palestine-Israel conflict to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday before presiding over a high-level meeting of the United Nations Security Council on the subject.
Wang emphasized China’s unwavering support for peace and demanded an immediate cessation of hostilities and the establishment of a two-state resolution.
According to Chinese observers, both Wang’s proposals and China’s presidency of the high-level meeting occur at a critical moment, when Palestine and Israel are currently maintaining a temporary ceasefire. These actions establish the groundwork for a prospective resolution to the Palestine dilemma by emphasizing the most critical concerns. Experts commended Wang’s attendance at the meeting for demonstrating China’s genuine commitment to resolving the crisis.
However, experts believe that the likelihood of this cease-fire lasting longer than two days is extremely remote, even if Israel and Hamas were to extend it. According to experts, as the crisis drags on, the United States is signaling to the international community that there are differences between itself and Israel in an attempt to avert the current diplomatic quagmire by maintaining pressure on Arab countries to counterbalance China’s influence.
Wang stated in a meeting with Guterres in New York that China resolutely supports peace, human conscience, and international law with the Palestine-Israel conflict. Wang is also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.
Wang stated that China endorses the secretary-general and the United Nations in their indispensable and one-of-a-kind efforts to resolve the Palestine-Israel conflict, adding that China’s stance is unambiguous.
He stated, initially, that the conflict should not be reignited. Hostages should be liberated, and a complete cessation of hostilities should be implemented to avert further humanitarian catastrophes.
Wang stated that, secondly, unimpeded access to Gaza for humanitarian supplies must be ensured. Moreover, in the interim, the two-state solution should be recommenced.
Wang made the remarks before presiding over a high-level meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday concerning the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Wang further informed Zambry Abdul Kadir, the foreign minister of Malaysia, on Tuesday that the United Nations’ high-level meeting is occurring on the final day of the provisional cease-fire agreement, which signifies a critical juncture. We must prevent the resumption of hostilities and the continued suffering of innocent civilians. It is imperative that the conference issue a lucid message concerning this issue.
