08:11, May 08, 2012

RAMALLAH, May 7 (Xinhua) -- The special envoy of China to the Middle East Wu Sike on Monday stressed the importance of joining the Chinese-Arab Forum that is scheduled to be held in Tunis at the end of May.

Wu told reporters in the aftermath of a meeting held in Ramallah with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that the forum, to be held under such crucial circumstances, will give a strong push to the Arab-Chinese ties.

"It will also push forward the peace process and find a just solution to the Palestinian cause," Wu said, adding that China has been always urging Israel to act on preparing a proper atmosphere for resuming the stalled peace talks, stopping settlement and ending blockade on Gaza.

The Chinese special envoy said that he had reiterated to Abbas that China understands and supports the Palestinian efforts to revive the peace process and push it forward, and that he also briefed Abbas on the contacts that China is holding with other international parties concerning the peace process, including the contacts with the Israeli side.

"China is concerned about the question of Palestinian prisoners who go on a hunger strike in the Israeli jails since April 17, we clarified that China is ready to exert efforts with other parties to resolve this issue as soon as possible," he added.
