Haaretz | Chinese President Calls for East Jerusalem as Capital of Palestinian State

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday called for establishing a Palestinian state within the pre-1967-war borders amid efforts by Beijing to assert its economic and political clout in the Middle East.

Addressing the Cairo-based Arab League, Xi said the Palestinian problem "should not be marginalized."
"China supports the peaceful process in the Middle East [and] the establishment of a Palestinian state with its capital being eastern Jerusalem," he added through an interpreter.

Xi announced 50 million yuan ($7.6 million) in aid for the Palestinians.
All the world's a stage.

Xi doesn't care one bit coin about the Iz-Pal conflict. But it helps to tell Arabs or anynone with a strong dislike of Israeli politics, i.e. the Arab world and Iran in particular, what they want to hear when you are on a business trip and want to make deals with them. East-Jerusalem the capital of a Palestinian state within pre-67 borders... a lovely idea but zero-likely to happen in any near future. Too many Izraeli facts on the ground outside the 67 borders and too much blood on the walls of self-exploders in Israeli restaurants, buses et-al and in Gaza after the IDF hammer. For these people to start with a clean sheet where reason and compromise have a chance you need Dr. Nuke first.
Outside, away from the noise, grows a flower.
