(Dan Tri) – Beijing said that the world “needs urgent action” to resolve the conflict in Gaza, avoiding the risk of widespread fighting.
At a meeting with leaders from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Palestine, Indonesia and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation on November 20, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi called on the world to join hands to resolve conflicts. currently between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
“The international community needs to act urgently and take effective measures to prevent this tragedy from spreading. With this conflict, China stands on the side of justice and fairness, Mr. Wang said.
Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud also called: “The message is very clear: End this war immediately. We must move towards an immediate ceasefire agreement, goods Aid needs to be brought into Gaza without delay.”
The Israel-Hamas conflict in the Gaza Strip flared up again on October 7 after Hamas fired more than 2,000 rockets toward Israel, killing more than 1,200 people. Hamas also captured more than 200 hostages from Israel and brought them to Gaza.
China strives to play an active role in finding a solution to this conflict. Last month, Beijing sent a special envoy to the Middle East to promote a ceasefire agreement in Gaza.
However, so far, these diplomatic efforts do not seem to have brought tangible results.
Israel announced that it will not cease fire until it achieves its goal of destroying Hamas, so that this force is no longer a threat to Israel. Israeli officials also believe that a ceasefire at this time could create conditions for Hamas to gather forces for another attack.
The US, an ally of Israel, also does not support a complete ceasefire, but persuades Israel to temporarily suspend military operations for humanitarian purposes.
