China expresses concern over US moving embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

Beijing, Dec 6 (efe-epa).- China on Wednesday expressed concern over a possible escalation of tensions in the Middle East due to an expected announcement by the United States about transferring its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday was expected to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and order the US embassy to be moved there, according to White House sources.

"The status of Jerusalem is very complicated and sensitive, all relevant parties should bear regional peace in mind, (...) avoid impacting the foundation for the settlement of the issue of Palestine and causing new confrontation in the region," China's foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said at a press conference.

Geng said that China had always supported the Middle East peace process, and is in favor of an independent state of Palestine based on the internationally approved 1967 borders, with its capital city in East Jerusalem.

"We call on relevant parties to follow the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council and stay committed to resolving differences through negotiation," he added.
