Israel’s war on Gaza: The view from China | Israel-Palestine conflict

China’s role in the Middle East is growing, but can it be a peacemaker between the Palestinians and Israelis?

Chinese officials have criticised Israel for going beyond self-defence in its war in Gaza, killing more than 36,000 Palestinians and making the enclave uninhabitable. Former Chinese government adviser Huiyao Wang, president of the Center for China and Globalization, says that the United States’ role in the conflict has been “incompetent”.

Wang talks to host Steve Clemons about how China’s approach to peace in the Middle East differs from the Western approach.
