Beijing considers the situation in the Gaza Strip “very serious”, considers that the risk of the spread of the Israel/Hamas war is increasing and the prospect is “alarming”, as hostilities of the Israeli army with neighboring states (Lebanon, Syria…) are intensifying, China’s special envoy for the Middle East, Jai Jun, said, China’s state media reported today.

Special Chargé d’Affaires Tsai noted that the Chinese government has and will continue to provide urgent humanitarian assistance to the Palestinians through the United Nations and through bilateral channels in order to alleviate the humanitarian crisis.

He added that Beijing was willing to do “anything” that could promote dialogue, the declaration of a ceasefire and the resumption of negotiations to achieve a two-state solution, according to Chinese state broadcaster CCTV.
