BEIJING - China stands ready to work with all parties to hold a more broad-based, authoritative and effective international peace conference as early as possible, formulate a concrete timetable and roadmap for the implementation of the two-state solution and support Palestine and Israel in resuming peace talks soon, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

Wang Wenbin, spokesman for the ministry, made the remarks in response to a related query at a daily news briefing.

Wang Wenbin said China supports Palestine and Israel in resuming peace talks soon for the ultimate peaceful and harmonious coexistence between Palestine and Israel, and between the Arabs and Jews

China has called for an international peace conference on the Palestinian question on multiple occasions for some time. After the latest Palestinian-Israeli conflict broke out, China submitted to the UN Security Council the Position Paper of the People's Republic of China on Resolving the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict and once again called for an international peace conference at an early date, Wang said. 

China's proposal is increasingly recognized in the international community, the spokesman said.
