China backs Palestine's bid for UN membership

submit to reddit

China on Tuesday said it backs Palestine’s efforts to seek recognition by the United Nations.

“China understands, respects and supports Palestine’s bid for UN membership,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei said at a daily press briefing on Tuesday.

Hong’s comments came after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Monday that he will formally apply for UN membership on Friday.

China has always supported Palestinians’ and Arabs’ push to restore their legitimate ethnic rights, Hong said.

Seeking independent statehood is the inalienable right of Palestinians, lays a foundation and precondition for the peaceful coexistence of Palestine and Israel and works toward creating lasting peace in the Middle East, Hong said.

Hong also urged the international community to enhance efforts to seek peace, promote consultations and push for the early resumption of Palestine-Israel negotiations.
