The Chinese people firmly support the righteous cause of the Palestinian people striving for national legal rights, an official of the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC) said Monday.

China maintains that the Palestine issue should be solved in a comprehensive and just way through negotiation that takes as a base related UN resolutions, the land-for-peace principle and the Arab peace proposal, CPAFFC Vice President Jing Dunquan told a reception marking International Day of Solidarity with the Palestine People.

An independent Palestine state with full sovereignty should be established to achieve a peaceful coexistence of Palestine and Israel that maintains regional stability, Jing said.

In 1977, the United Nations set Nov. 29 as International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

The China-Arab Friendship Conference held in Khartoum, Sudan, in 2006 ended with a decision to designate Nov. 29 China-Arab Friendship Day.

Jing said the Libyan capital, Tripoli, successfully hosted the third China-Arab Friendship Conference in October, adding that the fourth conference will be held in China in 2012.

Mirghani Mohamed Salih, dean of the Arab Diplomatic Corps and Sudan's ambassador to China, stressed his support for the Palestinian people's fight for legal national rights.

Mirghani Mohamed Salih also expressed appreciation for China's support for the legal rights of the Palestinian people and peoples from other Arab countries.

Palestinian Ambassador to China Ahmad A.M. Ramadan in his speech thanked the Chinese government and people for their firm backing of the righteous cause of the Palestinian people.

Around 150 people including government officials and diplomats attended the reception.
