On July 23, 2014, Foreign Minister Abdullah al-Attiyah of Qatar met at the Qatari Foreign Ministry with China's Special Envoy on the Middle East Issue Wu Sike, exchanging in-depth views on the Palestinian issue. H.E. Gao Youzhen, Chinese Ambassador to Qatar, attended the meeting.

Wu Sike said that the continued escalation of military conflict between Israel and Palestine has caused heavy casualties, and all parties should have a sense of urgency to promote the cease-fire. China condemns all military actions resulting in civilian casualties, urges relevant parties in Israel and Palestine to have in mind the safety of the people and the big picture of regional peace and stability, and meanwhile hopes the Arab states and other parties concerned coordinate their actions, thus to join forces promoting immediate cease-fire between Palestine and Israel. China appreciates the efforts of Qatar in pushing forward cease-fire between parties concerned in Palestine and Israel and stands ready to enhance communication and coordination with Qatar in resolving the Palestinian issue. Since the Middle East situation changed, Qatar has effectively safeguarded its own stability and development and played an important role in regional affairs. China appreciates this.

Abdullah al-Attiyah expressed that Qatar appreciates China's firm position in supporting the just cause of the Palestinian people, thanks China's support to its efforts pushing cease-fire between Palestine and Israel and welcomes China to play a greater role in the Palestinian issue. Qatar is willing to enhance cooperation with China, jointly promoting a just and reasonable settlement to the Palestinian issue. Qatar pays high attention to the comprehensive development of its relations with China and would like to join efforts with China to push the bilateral friendly and cooperative relations for new highs.
