Beijing, December 2. On December 1, the United Nations held the “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” commemorative meeting. President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory message to the meeting.
In his congratulatory message, Xi Jinping pointed out that the Palestine issue, as the root issue in the Middle East, is related to regional peace and stability, international fairness and justice, and human conscience.
Realizing Palestine and Israel living side by side and coexisting peacefully is not only the dream of the Palestinian and Israeli people for generations, but also the ardent expectation of the people of the region and the international community.
The international community should stick to the correct direction of the “two-state solution,” and work hard to promote the Middle East peace process based on relevant UN resolutions and the principle of “land for peace”. Under the current situation, we should pay more attention to the severe challenges posed by coronavirus pandemic to Palestine and help the Palestinian people fight the epidemic.
Xi Jinping emphasized that China pays great attention to the Palestinian issue, always upholds international justice and morality, supports the just cause of the Palestinian people to restore their national legal rights, and supports efforts that are conducive to the peaceful settlement of the Palestinian issue.
Since the outbreak, China has provided Pakistan with multiple batches of anti-epidemic assistance through multilateral and bilateral channels. As a good friend of Palestine, China will continue to provide assistance within its capacity. As a permanent member of the Security Council and a responsible major country, China is willing to continue to work with the international community to make unremitting efforts for the early realization of a comprehensive, just and lasting settlement of the Palestinian issue, and to make positive contributions to the early realization of peace, stability and development in the Middle East.
