China Allocates Millions To Palestinian Aid - Jul. 10, 2018
they are here too.?
China's official policy was and still is to support the creation of an independent Palestinian state based on 1967 (before 6 day war) borders and capital based in East Jerusalem. It just doesn't get involved with the current conflict and prefers a more peaceful solution. Mao Zedong was more militant and the policy changed under Deng Xiaoping. The end objective is a 2 state solution recognising both Palestine and Israel based on 1967 borders.
China had a consistent history of supporting Palestine and its leaders, like Yasser Arafat.
There is a de facto Chinese embassy in Ramallah (West Bank).
The bilateral relationship between the People's Republic of China and the State of Palestine has a long history, dating back to the time of Mao. Mao's foreign policy was in support of Third World national liberation movements. In the post-Mao era, China continued to support the Palestinian Liberation Organization in international forums. China recognized the State of Palestine in 1988. Since 1992, China also established formal diplomatic relations with Israel and has since maintained a cordial relationship with both entities. Palestinian leaders Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas have both visited China in an official capacity. China does not consider Hamas a terrorist organization, and officially supports the creation of a "sovereign and independent Palestinian state" based on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
yasser arafat was very popular in india .
China's support will make up for what Palestine lost because of uncle sam and Russia's betrayal. Good move by China.
