China has called for the formation of an independent Palestine to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. China, the East Asian superpower, made the remarks at a UN General Assembly meeting on Sunday.
The Israeli-Palestinian crisis, which began earlier this month, has now escalated into hundreds of deaths. The Gaza is still reeling from Hamas and Israeli attacks and counter-attacks. In this circumstances a meeting of United Nations General Assembly was held for resolving the issue. Speaking at the meeting, the Chinese Foreign Minister said that the formation of a Palestinian state would be the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
For the formation of a Palestinian state, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang said that the borders of the Palestinian state would be determined in accordance with the 1967 Boundary. In addition, China has proposed East Jerusalem as the capital of an independent Palestinian state.
However, China has called on the United States to play a role in proposing a Palestinian state. The Chinese foreign minister said that the United Nations had previously planned for many times to make Palestine an independent state but actually It was failed for US cooperation. So in the last meeting, China has called for US cooperation in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. At the meeting, the Nations also said that there is no alternative to establishing an independent state to establish peace in the Palestinian territories. However, China is not against Israel but call for two sovereign states.
It is pertinent to note that after the First World War, the Belfort Declaration called for the formation of a state of Israel. Following this, a non-state called Israel was formed in 1948 with some parts of the then Palestinian territories. The Palestinian Hamas group and the Israeli government are now playing a key role in the seven-decade-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Although United Nations had tried many times to resolve the crisis, it was not really successful.
