China says US veto paralyzing UN Security Council over Israel

China criticized the United States for its role in the Middle East tensions, adding that its veto has paralyzed the Security Council.

In a statement issued on late Tuesday, the Foreign Ministry urged a complete cease-fire by Israel in Palestine.

"What US does amid the Palestine-Israel conflict is deeply disappointing. Is this the human rights US touts around when Palestinian people suffer, or is it an excuse to serve US self-interest?" Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said in short statement posted on Twitter.

"Is this what US calls rule-based international order?" the spokesman questioned.
