China holds indisputable sovereignty over the South China Sea islands and their nearby waters, and the PLA Southern Theater Command maintains a high state of readiness at all times to resolutely defend the country’s sovereignty, security and peace and stability in the South China Sea region.
In July, the destroyer USS Benfold sailed near the Nansha Islands in the South China Sea only a few days after it was driven away by the PLA from Chinese territorial waters off the Xisha Islands.
Consecutive provocations by the U.S. expose not only its navigational hegemony, but also its anxiety in the face of the growing capabilities of the PLA, experts said.
Saying that China supports the strengthening of the authority of the Palestinian National Authority and the enhancement of unity among all parties in Palestine, Xi expressed the hope that Palestine and Israel could resume peace talks as soon as possible so as to bring the peace process in the Middle East back on track.
Xi said China will, as always, provide humanitarian and development assistance to the Palestinian side, support its capacity building and help Palestine develop its economy and improve people’s livelihood.
As a permanent member of the UN Security Council and a responsible major country, China will continue to work with the international community to make positive contributions to the lasting peace, universal security and common prosperity in the Middle East, Xi added.
