Foreign Ministry Spokesman Liu Jianchao's Comment on Israel's Decision to Speed up the Construction of the "Separation Barrier"
2005-07-15

Q: On July 10th, the Israeli Cabinet made the decision to speed up the construction of the "separation barrier" in East Jerusalem, which is expected to be completed before September 1st this year. What's the Chinese side's comment on that?

A: The Chinese side holds a consistent and explicit position of opposing Israel's building of "separation barrier" on the Palestinian occupied territory. We maintain that building the "separation barrier" will intensify conflicts between Israel and Palestine, which is inimical to the peace-making efforts of the international community and relevant parties.
