China Will Not Participate in US-Led Bahrain Conference

Palestine Chronicle | May 27, 2019

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. Why would China waste its time and effort attending a conference at which the Palestinians will have no hope of negotiating an acceptable outcome to them. The “World’s Policeman routinely turns a ‘Blind Eye’ to Israeli violence towards the Palestinians, and also ignores United Nations resolutions condemning Israel for their appalling behaviour as well.
    This conference will be a total sham, only to be used for Propaganda purposes…..

  2. Good on China and — I infer from the text — Russia. May many other potential donors-cum-suckers join them.

    Viva Palestine! Palestine Is Still THE Issue!
