He noted that since the conflict broke out last October, the international community has repeatedly called for an immediate ceasefire, and the Security Council resolutions have clearly demanded it. However, Israel has turned a deaf ear to this and is still pushing forward a large-scale attack on Rafah, displacing hundreds of thousands of people in the Gaza Strip. China expresses serious concern and strong opposition to this.

"Israel must immediately stop its military operation in Rafah. China supports the Security Council in taking further actions to ensure the implementation of the requirements of Security Council Resolution 2728. We also hope that the U.S., as a country with significant influence on Israel, will play a fair role in achieving a ceasefire," Fu said.

Fu pointed out that land transportation is the key to realize large-scale access of humanitarian aid supplies, and there is no other way to replace it. China urges Israel to earnestly fulfill its obligations under international law and international humanitarian law, immediately open all land crossing points and ensure the supply of basic subsistence materials such as food, medicine and fuel.

Fu stressed once again that that the two-state solution is the only feasible way to solve the Palestine-Israel Conflict. China supports Palestine's independent statehood and its early accession as a full member of the UN.
