Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas has called for the international community to “refrain from dealing” with Israel’s incoming government if it fails to commit to the two-state solution.
Speaking at the China-Arab States Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Friday, Abbas said, “These days we do not have a partner in Israel who believes in a two-state solution on the basis of international law, previously signed agreements, and the rejection of violence and terrorism,” according to Israeli media reports.
China’s President Xi Jinping met with Abbas in Riyadh on Thursday, where he expressed China’s support for the “Palestinians”.
“China will always firmly support the just cause of the Palestinian people,” he said.
In return, Abbas said that the Palestinian Authority “firmly support the one-China principle” and is “ready to stand firmly with China on all issues.”
Someone let Joe Biden know.
