China recognizes Palestinians' legitimate rights

Beijing, Dec 8, IRNA – Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang emphasized the fact that China recognizes legitimate rights of Palestinians.

'China firmly supports and advances the Middle East peace process. We support the just cause of the Palestinian people to restore their legitimate national rights and stand behind Palestine in building an independent, full sovereign state along the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital,' Shuang told reporters on Friday.

'We call on all parties to remain committed to resolving disputes through negotiations and promoting regional peace and stability in accordance with the relevant UN resolutions,' he added.

He also called for the resumption of peace talks between Palestine and Israel.

US president's Wednesday announcement to recognize Beit-ul Moqaddas as the capital city of Israel has faced extensive criticisms all over the world even from US allies.

Trump's decision was also criticized widely by world leaders and diplomats even inside the US.
