Forum between China and Arab countries to begin in Beijing

Beijing, May 29 (Prensa Latina) Leaders and diplomats from Arab countries are meeting in Beijing from Thursday to take part in a forum to strengthen ties between China and the Middle East.

Among the main leaders attending the event are the president of Egypt, Abdel Fatah al Sisi, and that of the United Arab Emirates, Mohamed bin Zayed al Nahyan.

China’s President Xi Jinping will address the opening ceremony to build a “common consensus” with Arab countries; at the top of the agenda is the massacre in the Gaza Strip, for whose resolution Xi has called for an international peace conference.

Following a meeting the day before with his counterparts from Yemen and Sudan, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said he hopes during the forum to strengthen solidarity and coordination with the Arab world.
