China calls for international efforts toward ceasefire in Gaza

New York: China has called for international efforts toward an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

The current conflict in Gaza has been going on for five months, which has led to unspeakable harm to women. Over 9,000 mothers and daughters have been killed, and hundreds of thousands of women displaced, said Geng Shuang, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations,.

"China calls on the international community to act promptly and redouble efforts to promote an immediate ceasefire to preserve for the people in Gaza their hope for survival," he told a Security Council briefing on conflict-related violence.

"We also call for increased diplomatic efforts so that all detainees could be released at an early date and reunited with their families," he added.
