Xi-Scholz 2 State Solution


Beijing, Apr 16 (EFE).-

Chinese President Xi Jinping and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz agreed Tuesday to support negotiations based on the two-state solution to resolve the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.

“Both sides believe that United Nations Security Council Resolution 2728 must be implemented to prevent the situation from worsening, as well as guarantee sustainable and barrier-free humanitarian access to the Gaza Strip and support negotiations based on the two-state solution of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians,” said a statement from the Chinese Foreign Ministry about the meeting.

Xi and Scholz said influential countries should “play a constructive role in maintaining regional peace and stability and promoting a lasting and just solution” to the Palestinian issue.

Scholz said in February that a negotiated two-state solution is “the only possible one” to resolve the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.

For its part, Beijing has on several occasions expressed its support for “the just cause of the Palestinian people to restore their legitimate rights and interests” and for the two-state solution, while expressing its “dismay” at attacks on civilians by Israel, whom he has repeatedly urged to respect the United Nations charter.

China has also said the recent increase in tensions is “an extension” of the conflict in Gaza and, therefore, the “immediate priority” is to “calm the situation” in said territory, for which all parties must “implement effectively” UN resolutions, “end hostilities immediately” and “avoid a humanitarian crisis.
