The envoy of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has praised the Chinese leadership for their support during the recent conflict in the Gaza strip. China has also developed strong trade links with Israel but has traditionally played a very low profile in diplomatic attempts to end the conflict.
The Chinese position is supporting the truce in Gaza, supporting, stopping any kind of aggression from the Israeli's against the Palestinian people, and they support our demands in the United Nations, and there was a special assistance of aid from the Chinese to donate one million dollars for our people in Palestine, especially in Gaza.
