China’s president has told a conference on cooperation with the Arab states that he supports peace in the Middle East and the creation of a Palestinian state.
In a keynote speech at the opening of the Sixth Ministerial Conference of the China-Arab States Cooperation Forum (CASCF) on Thursday, Xi Jinping talked of issues surrounding Palestine, and the Syrian crisis.
He said Beijing "is determined to support" the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and that he supports a "fully independent Palestinian state."
Xi added that Beijing "respects the people’s right to make demands" and said the Chinese government hopes for an immediate tolerant political transition in Syria and that it is in favor of a political solution.
China’s national news agency, Xinhua, reported Thursday that Syrian refugees would receive $16 million in humanitarian assistance from China while Palestine would receive around $9.6 million in aid.Last Mod: 05 Haziran 2014, 14:56
