"As is" reference - not a United Nations document
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hong Lei's Regular Press Conference on June 3, 2014
Q: On June 2, Palestine formed a national consensus government. What is China's comment on that?
A: China welcomes the national consensus government in Palestine. The realization of internal reconciliation in Palestine is conducive to both promoting solidarity of the Palestinian people and eventually building an independent State of Palestine as well as reaching peaceful coexistence of Palestine and Israel.
China always holds that peace talks are the only way towards peace between Palestine and Israel. It is our hope that the Israeli and Palestinian sides can proceed from the general picture of peace talks and the benefits of the two peoples, get over difficulties, march towards the same direction and resume peace talks and achieve concrete results at the earliest possible date. The international community should continue with their encouragement and support to this end.
