China expresses concern over Israel’s plans to annex lands in the West Bank
Beijing, China has expressed its concerns about the recent plan
to annex part of the occupied territory of Palestine in the West Bank as it
violates international law and UN Security Council Resolution 2334.
“We hope relevant parties will refrain from actions escalating the conflicts between Palestine and Israel. The international community should play a constructive role, further advance the political process, adhere to a “two-state solution” and work for early resumption of peace talks between Palestine and Israel,” Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, Geng Shuang, said in the regular press conference held on Wednesday.
The Chinese official’s remarks acme in response to a U.S. State Department spokesperson’s recent remarks that the United States is ready to recognize Israel’s actions to extend Israeli sovereignty to areas of the West Bank.
