State Councilor Wang Yi elaborated on China's views and proposal for promoting the Palestine-Israel peace under the current situation in his speech, emphasizing that it is important to reaffirm the conviction in peace and expand the ranks of peace advocates; to advocate an attitude of mutual accommodation and move forward the peace talks; to act in a spirit of solidarity and alleviate the humanitarian hardships; to stick to the two-state solution and deliver fairness and justice.

Palestinian and Israeli peace advocates reached a consensus at the symposium, reiterating that the two-state solution is the only viable way; hoping the international community to cause the United Nations to adopt a resolution on reiterating the two-state solution; advocating that countries in the region should normalize their relations with Israeli within the framework of the Arab Peace Initiative; calling on all parties to support the efforts of Palestinian and Israeli peace advocates to promote peace talks. Both sides also expressed great appreciation for China's long-term commitment to advancing the Palestine-Israel peace process, and hope that China will continue to play a bigger role in this regard.

On July 16, Special Envoy of the Chinese Government on the Middle East Issue Zhai Jun briefed the media on the Fourth Palestine-Israel Peace Symposium. Zhai Jun said, China held the symposium aimed at providing Palestinian and Israeli peace advocates with a platform for communication and exchanges so as to expand the ranks of peace advocates, gain momentum toward peace, explore the path to peace and co-existence, and contribute to restarting the peace talks between the two sides on the basis of the two-state solution. In the future, China will continue to hold the Palestine-Israel peace symposiums to facilitate the peace talks and play a positive role in promoting a thorough, just and permanent settlement of the Palestine-Israel issue at an early date.
