China ‘regrets’ US blocking UN statement on Palestine-Israel conflict

By India Today

China on Sunday voiced regret that the US was blocking a UN Security Council statement on Israeli-Palestinian violence as it urged greater international efforts to stop the bloodshed.

“Regrettably, simply because of the obstruction of one country, the Security Council hasn’t been able to speak with one voice,” Foreign Minister Wang Yi, whose country holds the Council’s rotating presidency, told a virtual session. “We call upon the United States to shoulder its due responsibilities.”

The United States, the primary ally of Israel, delayed the Security Council session from last week and has shown little enthusiasm for a statement.
