China Again Voices Support for Palestinian Authority

During Jewish holidays Pesah Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi unexpectedly expressed his support for creation of the Palestinian state on Thursday, April 13th, 2017.

“This kind of historical injustice must be corrected. It cannot continue,” Wang said.

Chinese official called for what he defined as “a revival” of the Palestinian and Israeli talks. Wang said it is “unfair” that Palestinians still do not have an independent state 70 years after a U.N. resolution called for the partition of Palestine into Jewish and Arab states.

A Chief of Chinese Diplomats comments on Thursday came at a news conference following his meeting with Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki in Beijing, The Associated Press reported.
