International Seconds China Sprays Israeli Representative at the UN News – 54 minutes ago


Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Chinese Ambassador to the UN Zhang Jun reportedly sprayed Israel’s representative at the UN, Gilad Edan. Quoting the Palestine Chronicle, this happened at a meeting last Wednesday.

At that time, Erdan initially gave a speech before the UN Security Council. However, he cursed and even cornered the UN directors.


“Shameless! You are truly embarrassing,” said Edan, quoted Friday (24/11/2023).

He also cornered UN briefings. This is because UN officials and agencies have called Israeli victims “mere footnotes”.

“Where is the anger UN Women against Hamas for treating women like property and using them as human shields?,” he said.

“Why only now have you decided to talk about women and children in Gaza?” Erdan said.

This was not accepted by Chinese Ambassador Zhang Jun. He then criticized Israel’s representatives.

“Dear Israeli representatives,” Zhang interjected.

“I would like to remind you that you can completely express different opinions in your statements, but please show respect at least to the briefers invited to the meeting,” he stressed.

“This is a consistent practice of the Security Council and a rule that everyone must adhere to,” he added.

“I want to remind you to pay attention. And please, continue your speech,” he said loudly.

China itself is said to have played a major role in challenging America’s pro-Israel political discourse at the UN. The country was one of the first countries to demand an immediate and unconditional ceasefire in Gaza.
