China’s special envoy to the Middle East, Mr. Wu Si-ke, today called for the inclusion of the Islamic Resistance Movement in the negotiations aimed at achieving peace in the region. He said that the current policy is untenable because Hamas has become an important political player.

“Adherence to the truce can be a new beginning to move the peace process forward to resolving the Palestinian issue,” Wu Si-ke, “but this requires more steps.”

The Chinese envoy called on Israel to comply with the demands of the international community by ending its settlement expansion on occupied Palestinian land, lifting the siege on Gaza and returning to the negotiating table.
