Beijing, Oct 31 : China will keep promoting the peaceful resolution of the Ukrainian and Palestinian-Israeli conflicts, as well as resisting ideological divisions and confrontation, Chinese Assistant Foreign Minister Nong Rong said on Tuesday.
“China will continue to adhere to the core direction of promoting reconciliation and peace negotiations, encourage the countries involved to strengthen mutual security trust, and resolve contradictions and differences through frank dialogue and interaction,” Nong said at the 10th Beijing Xiangshan Forum.
He reiterated that China would keep facilitating the start of a reconciliation process and peace negotiations between Russia and Ukraine.
Speaking about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Nong said that Beijing would continue to actively push the sides to an early ceasefire to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe and stand for the implementation of the two-state solution to the Palestinian issue.
“China will continue to engage in various forms of dialogue and exchanges with all parties on global security issues, work with all parties to realize common comprehensive cooperation and the concept of sustainable security, and resist ideological lines, narrow circles and incitement to division and confrontation,” the diplomat added.
The 10th Xiangshan Forum is taking place in Beijing from October 29-31. It has been held since 2006 as a venue for discussing important international security issues. This year’s event will be the first in-person forum since 2019, as hosting international events was prohibited in China due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
