PARIS, June 3 -- China welcomes and supports all efforts conducive to easing tensions between Israeland Palestineand to an early realization of the two-state solution, China's Foreign minister Wang Yi said on Friday during the Middle East peace initiative ministerial conference here.

Wang said the question of Palestine is the fundamental issue to the Middle East. "We cannot allow the question of Palestine to be marginalized, we can not allow the Middle East peace process to be stalled, and we cannot allow the implementation of relevant UN resolutions to be delayed indefinitely," he said.

Wang added that foreign ministers participating in the conference should speak with one voice and take joint actions in order to make the conference become a new starting point for renewed efforts of the international community to foster peace.

During the conference, Wang said China stands for an early implementation of "three stops": stop the violence, stop the settlement expansion, and stop the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, he said China also invites concerned parties and the international community to work together to push for "three explores": explore a wider range of efforts conducive to peace, explore peace talk follow-up measures, and explore an incentive mechanism for promoting peace.

China has always supported the just cause of the Palestinian people to restore their legitimate national rights and the establishment of an independent sovereign state, the Chinese foreign minister stressed.

Earlier this year, Chinese President Xi Jinpingduring his speech given at the Arab LeagueHeadquarters called for efforts to resume peace talks at the political level and advance reconstruction on the economic front, Wang recalled.

The Chinese side has contributed to the capacity building of the Palestinians through humanitarian assistance, training, aid, etc, Wang explained, announcing that China will provide a humanitarian aid of 50 million RMB (7.61 million U.S. dollars) to Palestine.

As long as the international community continues to make concerted efforts to foster peace, and the Israeli and Palestinian sides persevere in the choice of peace talks, peace will be achieved, Wang said.
