"Israel should stop all incitement and provocation and avoid any unilateral actions that might lead to aggravation of the situation," the Chinese diplomat said at a joint press briefing on Sunday with Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry.
Qin also called for "maintaining the status quo" at Jerusalem's most important holy site - after an ultranationalist Israeli cabinet minister visited the site known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary - or the Al-Aqsa Mosque - Islam's third holiest shrine.
The visit by Itamir Ben-Gvir, Israel's national security minister, was seen by Palestinians as a provocation and drew widespread condemnation from across the Muslim world.
Qin called on all concerned to maintain calm and restraint to prevent further escalation of tensions.
He said the Palestinian issue concerned regional peace and stability as well as international fairness and justice, and that China attached great importance to it, according to state news agency Xinhua.
Qin also noted that Chinese President Xi Jinping had put forward proposals on resolving the Palestinian issue on many occasions, urging the international community to firmly support the "two-state solution" and adhere to principle of "land for peace" to promote peace talks, expand humanitarian and development assistance to Palestine, and promote an early, just and lasting solution to the issue.
Qin said China had responded to Arab and Palestinian demands by supporting the UN Security Council in holding an emergency public meeting last week on the Palestine issue, and had pushed the council to play its due role in the matter.

China can go first. Stop provoking your neighbors in the pacific then we’ll talk.
China badly needs Arab oil and gas. They would even fund trans Asian gas and oil pipelines if they could assure security along the routes. However the Chinese lecturing anyone on human rights is a bit hard to take.
CCP means the provocation of
Qin Gang, Song Tao and ‘Special Agent Diplomacy’
They question is, why have they made this move? They care nothing for Palestinians. So what do they hope to gain?
Mind your own business, China. You have absolutely zero right to be talking about “provocation” or anything else to Israel, you filthy swine.
“China badly needs Arab oil and gas.”
Yes, China is in the spot we used to be. Dependent on Arab oil. Because of that expect to see a lot more Chinese involvement in the region.
Elsewhere in the news, meager Uighur concern.
So when Black children, under the protection of Federal Marshalls, started to attend previously segregated schools in Alabama, that was a “violation of the status quo” and a needless “provocation” (it would seem according to Chinese “logic”).
What does China know about “rights” and what”s “fair”? Why shouldn’t an Israeli Minister be allowed to visit the Temple Mount and even pray if that is what he wants to do?
China should direct its attention to “rights” in their own country (that is if there are any).
China” “How dare you not let them kill you!”
“Is being driven into the sea too much to ask?”
I guess he’s talking about relations with the Palestine Christians, or is he suggesting that Israel treat the Arabs like the Uyghurs?
I doubt there’s 2000 Nazarenes left in the PA occupied territories.
They’ve killed or driven them off.
We have a pretty nice apartment building our family built up and lived in; we now rent almost exclusively to Arab Nazarenes bc they are heavily doctors and want to rent during residency. Good tenants. Mostly IDF vets.
They’ve swung in my lifetime from more antisemitic than Muslims to proud Israelis.
Israel needs to find a way to ship them all to China. Historically Palestinians are nomads so let them wander on.
What a debacle it would be if tombs were discovered that prove the Tarim Basin is their true point of origin.
China is a big country; surely they can develop their own oil and gas resources. Why are they buying from the Arabs?
Is this an indirect way for them to get entangled in the Ezekiel 38 and 39 alliances?
