Speaking via telephone with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, the Chinese leader said the Palestinian issue concerned regional peace and stability, international fairness and justice, as well as human conscience and credibility. China’s position on the issue, said Xi, was consistent and clear: It firmly supports Palestinians’ just demands, and all efforts conducive to resolving the conflict.

The “two-state solution” is the right approach to the problem, he said, adding that China is prepared to continue to contribute to a “comprehensive, fair and lasting settlement” of the conflict, according to the report.

The Chinese and Palestinians have been friends and good partners, affirmed Xi, and support each other’s core interests.

For his part, Abbas thanked China for its support during the COVID-19 outbreak and for its efforts with regard to Palestinian issues, calling China the most reliable friend of the Palestinian people, according to the report.

The Palestinians support China’s position on Hong Kong and other Chinese core interests and expect China to play a greater role in the Palestinian issue, said Abbas.

    If China decides to assist Gaza (Palestine) in building its infrastructure like a port and rebuilding its internationally funded aerodrome, destroyed by Israel decades ago, I dont think Israel nor the USA would be able to interfere. China is active internationally building infrastructure in many developing countries. The USA have been seen as a “paper tiger” (a 1960’s China cold war terms) in the South China Sea too.

    The last sentence says it all.
    Abbas and the PA/PLO support China’s actions in Hong Kong and other core interests – i.e. occupation of Tibet and “re-education” of minorities among others.
    A Palestinian State embracing democracy, respect human rights and a genuine peace partner is as illusory as touting China as a model of enlightenment and supporter of democratic values.

      Spot on Michael. It is the same PA that stayed shtum when Saddam Hussein murdered Kurds in Halabjeh with nerve gas and more recently when IS butchered and enslaved Yazidis. The Fakestinians think they are the centre of the universe and the vanguard of universal jihad, who exist to make Jews dhimmis again, as prescribed by the Koran.
