China expresses its disappointment with the American veto

China's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Zhang Jun, announced that his country is deeply disappointed by the United States' use of its veto power against a draft resolution for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.
“We express our deep disappointment and regret that the United States vetoed the project,” Zhang Jun said.

He added: "Two months of fighting left an unprecedented number of deaths and destruction... and an immediate ceasefire is a very important demand."

On Friday, the UN Security Council failed to pass a draft resolution demanding a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, after the United States used its veto against the resolution.
The final results of the voting process on the resolution were: “13 countries voted in favor of the resolution, except for Britain, which abstained from voting, and the United States, which used its veto power against the resolution.”

The draft resolution calls for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip for humanitarian reasons. The draft also stresses the need for the immediate and unconditional release of all detainees and to ensure the arrival of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.

For his part, the US Deputy Representative to the Security Council, Robert Wood, said that the United States used its veto against the draft resolution because it does not condemn the Hamas movement and does not confirm Israel's right to defend itself.

Russian Deputy Representative to the United Nations, Dmitry Polyansky, stated that the United States prohibits the Security Council from intervening to resolve the crisis in Gaza, and the results of this diplomacy are a graveyard for Palestinian children in Gaza.

He added: "By obstructing reaching a ceasefire, the United States condemned tens of thousands of civilians in Palestine to death before our eyes, and American diplomacy left behind a scorched earth and destruction."

Polyansky stressed that "history will not forgive these actions of Washington."
