US is ignoring suffering of Muslims, accuses China after US blocked UNSC meeting on Palestine

China has accused the United States of "ignoring the suffering" of Muslims, after Washington blocked a scheduled UN Security Council meeting aimed at addressing an intensifying conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Talking to reporters in Beijing, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying said the US single handedly obstructed the Security Council from speaking out on the crisis, while "standing on the opposite side of the international community".

She said the United States should realise that the lives of Palestinian Muslims are equally precious.
