Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

China will invite Israelis and Palestinians for dialogue

China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi unveiled a five-point plan for bringing security and stability to the Middle East.

Wang, who is visiting Saudi Arabia as part of a tour of the Middle East, in an interview with Al Arabiya, called for “mutual respect” among the countries in the Middle East and said that he would be issuing invitations to Israeli and Palestinian leaders to meet in China for a peace dialogue. Wang called for a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. It is not the first time that China has offered to mediate peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Wang also called for the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East, saying that: “The efforts of the countries of the region must be supported to ensure that they are free of nuclear weapons.”

He also said that China supports Saudi cease-fire initiative to solve the years-long civil war in Yemen.
