Russia urges two-state solution for Israel-Palestine peace

China joins call for two-state solution in Middle East conflict


Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov emphasized on Monday that a two-state solution, aimed at facilitating peaceful coexistence between Israel and the Palestinians, remains the sole viable path once hostilities subside.

Lavrov conveyed this during a press conference held in Moscow, where he was joined by Ahmed Abul Gate, the head of the Arab League. Gate warned of potential future conflicts should Israel not reconsider its stance towards the Palestinians.

Notably, Beijing has also expressed its support for a two-state resolution. Earlier, a spokesperson from the Chinese Foreign Ministry, in response to inquiries about the Middle East situation, reaffirmed China's opposition to violence and attacks.

Wang Wenbin, the spokesperson, underscored, "The correct course of action is the pursuit of a two-state solution," while urging the international community to take decisive steps to de-escalate tensions.

It's worth recalling that during a UN Security Council session, China's Ambassador Jang Jun condemned all attacks on civilians, emphasizing the urgent need for a return to a peace process, ultimately leading to the implementation of a two-state solution.
