China offers to host Israeli-Palestinian peace talks

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi invites Israeli and Palestinian representatives to hold peace talks in China in order to work toward a two-state solution.

“The past and the present have proved time and again that the two-state solution is the only viable way to resolve the Palestinian question as it represents international consensus, fairness and justice,” says Wang at a Palestinian-Israeli Peace Symposium convened by the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

Wang calls for the UN Security Council to host an international peace conference in order “to put the two-state solution into practice and restart peace talks between the two sides.”

Palestinian Authority Social Affairs Minister Ahmed Majdalani tells the conference that he hopes to “implement a set of measures to build confidence between peoples, improve the humanitarian situation and open a real window for negotiations to end the conflict.”
