China says no exception for US in complying with int’l law

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Thursday that there is no exception nor any privilege for the US in complying with international law, including UN Security Council resolutions, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.

“The UN Security Council, in response to the calls of the international community, has been continuously deliberating on draft resolutions regarding a ceasefire in Gaza, only to be repeatedly vetoed by the US,” Wang said at a joint press conference after meeting with Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi in Jakarta, according to the report.

Wang criticized the US for employing international law as merely a tool that can be utilized at will or discarded when deemed unnecessary. The minister expressed hope that the US would change its long-standing superiority complex, and work, as a member of the US, along with other member states, to fulfill the due international responsibilities, support Resolution 2728, and achieve an overall cease-fire in the Gaza Strip at an early date, so as to save the Palestinian people from their sufferings.
