China's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Zhang Jun said the situation in Palestine and Israel is at the top of the Security Council's agenda this month,
and it's imperative to promote a ceasefire and halt the fighting.
Speaking to reporters at U.N. Headquarters in New York City, as China began its presidency of the Security Council in November,
Zhang said that the parties concerned must abide by international humanitarian law,
take concrete actions to stop bombing civilian targets and allow the delivery of humanitarian aid supplies.
Zhang also show the gifts that he gave to the committee members to the reporters.
"It's called Luban lock. You can break it easily by putting out one of the six, and then they break. The problem is how to fix it?
“这叫‘鲁班锁’，你很轻易地就能破坏它，只要拉出六块木头中的一块，它们就分开了 。问题在于怎么把它重新组装起来 。
We may also take it as the serious challenges ahead of us, it needs our solidarity, it needs us to hold each other up together,
and then we have more powerful strengths to tackle all the issues ahead of us."
The envoy called on the Security Council to strengthen unity, build consensus, and take responsible and meaningful actions as soon as possible.
