BEIJING, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping said Wednesday that a comprehensive and just settlement of the Palestinian issue is in the interest of regional countries and their people, including Palestine, and is conducive to promoting global peace and stability. Xi made the remarks in a congratulatory message as the United Nations marked the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The Palestinian issue is the root problem of the Middle East issues, which is of great concern for long-lasting peace, prosperity and development of the Middle East countries, including Palestine, Xi said. Achieving a comprehensive and just settlement of the Palestinian issue at an early date is in the interest of regional countries and their people, including Palestine, and is conducive to promoting global peace and stability, he said. China firmly supports Palestinian-Israeli peace, Xi said, adding that the four-point propositions proposed by China in July to promote settling the Palestinian issue aim to push Palestine and Israel to rebuild mutual trust and strive for an early resumption of peace talks. As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and a responsible major country, China is willing to work with the international community to make unremitting efforts to achieve comprehensive, just and long-lasting peace in the Middle East at an early date, Xi added.
