Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to the State of Palestine, Guo Wei, said that his country will not take part in the US-led ‘Peace to Prosperity’ conference, scheduled on June 25-26 in Bahrain’s capital, Manama.

In a meeting with Nabil Shaath, advisor to President Mahmoud Abbas for external affairs and international relations, the ambassador of China said that boycotting the Bahrain conference comes within the framework of a bilateral Russian-Chinese agreement not to participate in it.

The ambassador stressed his country’s position in support of the Palestinian cause and people, including their right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent state of Palestine within the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

For his part, Shaath stressed the Palestinian rejection of the US-led economic workshop set to be held in Bahrain, considering it part of the US so-called ‘deal of the century’.

Shaath briefed the Chinese ambassador on the Palestinian political situation and the serious Israeli violations against the Palestinian people, land, and holy sites in violation of international law and signed agreements,  praising China’s role and that of all other friendly countries.

  1. I am from Vancouver,Canada and I wanted to say that the US Gov’t has always supported Israeli occupation of Palestine.Since this conference is led by the US Gov’t that makes the US Gov’t an enemy of Palestine.This conference is an insult to all Palestinians and has been condemned throughout the world.Israeli Occupation should be the main priority of the conference since that is what effects the Palestinians most of all.Since that is not been discussed the conference is worthless.
