China ‘deeply disappointed’ by US veto of UN resolution on Israel-Hamas war

China says it is “deeply disappointed” by the United States’ decision to veto a UN Security Council resolution calling for a “humanitarian pause” in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

“China is deeply disappointed in the United States’ obstruction of the Security Council’s adoption of a draft resolution on the Palestinian issue,” foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said, calling on the Security Council to “play its role in reaching a ceasefire and stopping the war.”

The US vetoed the resolution, which did not recognize Israel’s right to defend itself.
