December 4, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying presided over a regular press conference. A reporter asked a question. It is reported that on December 2, Guo Wei, director of the Chinese Office in Palestine, and Lazarini, Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, signed the certificate of handover of anti-epidemic materials from China to the Agency online. Lazarini tweeted to thank the Chinese government. How does China comment on this?
Hua Chunyu said that Director Guo Wei signed a certificate for the handover of anti-epidemic assistance with Commissioner Lazarini, marking the completion of all the anti-epidemic materials promised by China to Palestine and other countries and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East this year.
I note that Commissioner-General Lazarini thanked the Chinese government for its long-term firm support to the Agency, appreciated China’s aid operations to effectively alleviate the Agency’s shortage of anti-epidemic materials, positively evaluated the good relations between the Agency and China, and looked forward to strengthening cooperation with China.
Hua Chundi said that a few days ago, President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory telegram to the United Nations International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. I would like to emphasize that China has always supported the just cause of the Palestinian people and sympathizes with the suffering of refugees inside and outside Palestine.
The COVID-19 epidemic is still raging, and the Palestinian question is still complex and difficult to solve. China will continue to provide assistance to Palestine and other countries in the fight against the epidemic, continue to support United Nations agencies and multilateralism with practical actions, and contribute to the early realization of a comprehensive and just settlement of the question of Palestine and lasting peace in the Middle East. Power.
