China gave President Shimon Peres the royal welcome Tuesday, with Chinese President Xi Jinping stating that the Jewish people and the Chinese share a common opposition to militarism and fascism.
Xi added that China wants to continue high-level exchanges with Israel and establish stronger ties and cooperation in the fields of technology, agriculture, medical treatment, environmental protection, energy and education.
“We have full confidence in the China-Israel relationship,” Xi said.
Peres called the Chinese a peace-loving people, an interesting twist on China’s love for its own people whom they kill often kill for the sake of the regime’s own peace.
Peres, of course, also talked about the peace process, which he said China can help advance.
