China Calls for Ceasefire in Israel, Urges Major World Powers to Act

Wang Yi has called for a quick ceasefire in Israel, emphasising the importance of major world powers working together to avoid a humanitarian calamity.

China’s Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, has urged an immediate ceasefire in Israel, emphasizing the need for major world powers to cooperate to prevent a humanitarian disaster. 

His statement came during a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Beijing.

UN Security Council Involvement:

Wang stressed the importance of action by the United Nations Security Council and called on major powers to actively address the Israel-Hamas conflict. 

He proposed implementing a ceasefire, bringing both sides back to the negotiation table, and establishing an emergency humanitarian channel to avert further humanitarian crises.

Shared Concerns Over Palestinian Rights:

Both Russia and China, as permanent members of the UN Security Council, have expressed concerns about the lack of justice for the Palestinians as a core issue in the Israel-Hamas conflict. 

The Palestinians seek a state with East Jerusalem as its capital in the West Bank and also the Gaza Strip, territories captured by Israel in the 1967 war.

While Russia has condemned violence against both Jews and Palestinians, President Vladimir Putin has criticized the United States for what he perceives as a flawed approach that does not prioritize the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.

Discussion on International and Regional Issues:

The meeting between Wang and Lavrov also covered a wide range of international and regional matters, including the escalating situation in the Middle East. Both nations exchanged views on the conflict in the region.

Additionally, the foreign ministers discussed the military conflict in Ukraine and efforts to find a resolution through political and diplomatic means.

Wang expressed China’s appreciation for President Putin’s support for the Belt and Road Initiative and welcomed Russia’s continued active participation.
