Chi­ne­se FM ur­ges just, rea­so­na­ble so­lu­ti­on to Pa­les­ti­ne is­sue

Times of Suriname - - KINDERPAGI­NA -

BE­IJ­ING ­ Chi­ne­se Sta­te Coun­ci­lor and Fo­reign Mi­nis­ter Wang Yi cal­l­ed for a just and rea­so­na­ble so­lu­ti­on to the Pa­les­ti­ne is­sue when de­li­ve­ring a writ­ten speech on Wed­nes­day lo­cal ti­me at the Uni­ted Na­ti­ons (UN) Se­cu­ri­ty Coun­cil’s vi­deo con­fe­ren­ce over the mat­ter.

The Pa­les­ti­ne is­sue has al­ways been at the co­re of the Midd­le East is­sue and a just and rea­so­na­ble so­lu­ti­on is a prer­equi­si­te for the re­gi­on’s las­ting pea­ce and se­cu­ri­ty, Wang said, ad­ding Chi­na is dee­ply con­cerned about the con­ti­nuing ten­si­on bet­ween Pa­les­ti­ne and Is­rael re­cent­ly. He said that un­der the cur­rent cir­cum­stan­ces, the four­point pro­po­sal put for­ward in 2017 by Chi­ne­se Pre­si­dent Xi Jin­ping for sett­ling the Pa­les­ti­ne is­sue, is of more prac­ti­cal sig­ni­fi­can­ce.

Ba­sed on the pro­po­sal, Chi­na would li­ke to emp­ha­si­ze the fol­lo­wing four points, Wang said. De­vi­a­ti­on from in­ter­na­ti­o­nal con­sen­sus should be avoi­ded. The “two­sta­te so­lu­ti­on” is the bottom li­ne of in­ter­na­ti­o­nal fair­ness and jus­ti­ce and his­to­ry can not be re­ver­sed, he said. Chi­na sup­ports Pa­les­ti­ne in es­ta­blis­hing an in­de­pen­dent sta­te with full sove­reign­ty ba­sed on the 1967 bor­ders with East Je­rusa­lem as its ca­pi­tal, Wang said, ad­ding that the na­ti­o­nal rights of the Pa­les­ti­ni­an pe­o­p­le should not be tra­ded.

Me­an­w­hi­le, Is­rael’s right to exist and its le­gi­ti­ma­te se­cu­ri­ty con­cerns should al­so be ful­ly res­pec­ted, Wang ad­ded. He emp­ha­si­zed that re­le­vant UN re­so­lu­ti­ons, the prin­ci­ple of “land for pea­ce” as well as the ge­ne­ral di­rec­ti­on of the “two­sta­te so­lu­ti­on” should be ob­ser­ved and re­af­fir­med.

Pea­ce­ful dia­lo­gue should not be aban­do­ned, Wang said, calling for an ear­ly re­sump­ti­on of equal dia­lo­gue bet­ween Pa­les­ti­ne and Is­rael to re­build mu­tu­al trust, de­fu­se con­flicts and find a way to coexist pea­ce­ful­ly. In ac­cor­dan­ce with re­le­vant UN re­so­lu­ti­ons, the is­sue of the oc­cu­pied West Bank should be re­sol­ved as soon as pos­si­ble, said Wang, stres­sing that the fi­nal bounda­ry bet­ween Pa­les­ti­ne and Is­rael should be de­li­mi­ted through pea­ce­ful ne­go­ti­a­ti­ons.
