China calls for Hamas to take consideration into the fundamental interests of the Palestinian people, and to renounce violence, recognize Israel.
And it should accept previously reached Palestinian-Israeli agreements, said Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Liu Jianchao at a regular press conference Tuesday in Beijing.
The European Union and the United States have cut off aid to the Palestinian National Authority since the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) formed a government in late March.
Liu said that the Chinese side is concerned about the situation in the Middle East, and doesn't stand for political isolation and economic blockage.
He said all the relevant parties in the Middle East should solve disputes through political consultations based on relevant resolutions of the United Nations and the principle of land for peace, so as to realize peaceful coexistence.
Liu also said the Chinese side will make clear its stance to Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mahmoud al-Zahar who will attend the foreign ministers' meeting of the China-Arab Cooperation Forum to be held in Beijing on Wednesday and Thursday.
