Chinese Foreign Minister urges a comprehensive and permanent ceasefire in Gaza
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China and Brazil should seek to achieve a new consensus in the United Nations Security Council, push for a comprehensive and permanent ceasefire between Israel and Palestine, as well as the release of prisoners, and return to the two-state solution as the basic solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Wang, who is also a member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, made the comments during talks with his Brazilian counterpart Mauro Vieira.
For his part, Vieira said that the Brazilian side agrees with China's position, noting that the temporary ceasefire must be extended first, and peaceful coexistence between Palestine and Israel must ultimately be achieved through the two-state solution.
He stressed that Brazil is ready to work closely with China to demand that the Security Council take new measures, and to speak with a clear, unanimous voice.
