"We reaffirm our offer to the peace supporters from Palestine and Israel to continue their dialogue in China and invite representatives of both sides to come to China for direct talks," RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

Wang Yi noted that Beijing calls on Israel to show restraint and stop demolishing houses and evicting Palestinians.

China also called on Palestine to avoid escalating steps.

The Chinese Foreign Minister added that Beijing calls on the United States to demonstrate its responsibility and support the UN Security Council "in alleviating the situation, restoring confidence and promoting a political settlement."

Earlier, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that hostilities in the Gaza Strip and Israel must stop. According to him, the only way out of the conflict is through negotiations.
