Shaath calls for larger China role in peace process

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Senior Fatah official Nabil Shaath on Saturday called for China to play a larger role in the Middle East peace process, a statement said.

Shaath made the comments during a meeting with a Chinese delegation in Ramallah, adding that as a world superpower China could play an active role in peace efforts between Palestinians and Israelis.

US peace efforts, spearheaded by secretary of state John Kerry, have not led to serious pressure for Israel to withdraw from occupied Palestinian territories and engage in peace talks, Shaath said.

The Fatah official praised relations between China and Palestine, with Chinese officials reaffirming their support for a Palestinian state on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
