On July 20, 2014, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs Nasser Judeh of Jordan met in Amman with China's Special Envoy on the Middle East Issue Wu Sike, exchanging views on the current Palestine-Israel situation.

Wu Sike said that the constant escalation of conflicts between Israel and Palestine has caused massive casualties and loss of property and impacted security and stability of the Middle East especially the neighboring countries. China attaches great importance to and is deeply grieved and concerned over this. China condemns any attack targeted at civilians, welcomes the cease-fire initiative put forward by Egypt, and urges relevant parties in Israel and Palestine to give priority to the people's safety and the big picture of regional peace and stability and to actively cooperate with and respond to the cease-fire initiative and mediation efforts of the international community, thus to cease fire immediately and avoid taking any actions that may escalate the tense situation such as ground operation and launching rocket projectiles. China pays attention to and appreciates the unique role of Jordan in pushing forward the cease-fire between Israel and Palestine and resuming the Palestine-Israel peace talks. China stands ready to enhance communication and coordination with Jordan.

Judeh said that Jordan attaches great importance to China's role and influence regarding the Palestinian issue. Both sides share highly consistent stances and are sympathetic to the suffering of the people of Gaza. Jordan has made great efforts in the UN Security Council to push forward the cease-fire between Palestine and Israel, which has been strongly supported by the Chinese side. Jordan appreciates this. Jordan welcomes China to play a bigger role in the Palestinian issue and is willing to enhance communication, coordination and cooperation with China at bilateral and multi-lateral levels in order to join efforts to realize the cease-fire and resume talks between Palestine and Israel as soon as possible and push the Palestinian issue being resolved justly and reasonably at an early date.
