On November 29, 2017, the United Nations (UN) held the Observance of the "International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People", and President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory message to the Observance.
Xi Jinping expressed in the congratulatory message that the Palestinian issue is the root of the Middle East issues. It is of great significance to the lasting stability and peace as well as prosperity and development for various countries in the Middle East including Palestine. An early, comprehensive and just resolution of the Palestinian issue conforms to the interests of peoples of Palestine and other countries in the region, and is conducive to promoting world peace and stability.
Xi Jinping pointed out that China is a firm supporter of Palestine-Israel peace. This July, China has put forward four propositions on pushing forward the settlement of the Palestinian issue, aiming to promote Palestine and Israel to rebuild mutual trust and strive to resume peace talks as soon as possible. As a permanent member of the UN Security Council and a responsible major country, China is willing to, together with the international community, make unremitting efforts for an early realization of comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East.
