  • PA wants China to play a special role in the ME
    Al-Salhi, who is also general secretary of the Palestinian People's Party, referred to Beijing as a "broker" and a "mediator" after talks with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi, AFP reported.

    He said China could succeed where the United States failed, regarding finding a solution to end hostilities in the region.

    "We are very interested in the Chinese role in all the Middle East because all the Middle East needs more efforts from the international community," he said.

    "They want to be involved (in the Middle East) and we are interested in them being more involved. A special role (for) China is coming," he added, according to AFP.

    China, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, has voiced support for the Palestinian Authority push for full state membership at the United Nations.
