China’s UN envoy lashes out at US for vetoing Gaza ceasefire resolution

China has expressed its “strong disappointment” over the United States blocking a draft United Nations Security Council resolution on the Israel-Hamas war calling for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire, Xinhua reports on Wednesday, citing China’s permanent representative to the United Nations Zhang Jun.

“China expresses its strong disappointment at and dissatisfaction with the US veto,” Xinhua reports Zhang Jun as saying.

“The US veto sends a wrong message, pushing the situation in Gaza into a more dangerous one,” Zhang says, adding that objection to a ceasefire in Gaza is “nothing different from giving the green light to the continued slaughter.”
