On May 24, 2017, Special Envoy of the Chinese Government on the Middle East Issue Gong Xiaosheng attended and addressed the Madrid International Conference on Victims of Ethnic and Religious Violence in the Middle East co-held by Spain and Jordan as Foreign Minister Wang Yi's representative.

Gong Xiaosheng said that the Chinese side supports political settlement of the Middle East hotspot issues through dialogue and consultation, and is willing to strengthen cooperation with the international community and jointly cope with terrorism and the spreading of extremism. China believes that a complete solution of the Middle East hotspot issues is of great importance. The international community shall not emphasize concerns on only one certain hotspot issue and overlook other issues, in particular the Palestinian Issue.

Gong Xiaosheng stressed that the fundamental solution to terrorism is development. The "Belt and Road" proposed by President Xi Jinping is an initiative with peace and development. All countries strengthen cooperation under the framework of the "Belt and Road", which will present bright prospects to the new generation and encourage them to choose hope and abandon extremism.
