The eighth ministerial meeting of the China-Arab States Cooperation Forum (CASCF) will be held on July 10 in Beijing.

The CASCF, founded 14 years ago, has facilitated China's cooperation and communication with the Arab states as a whole.

The ministerial meeting is the permanent mechanism of the forum and convenes every two years, with the option for extraordinary sessions if necessary.

What will be discussed?

Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, foreign ministers and representatives from Arab countries, and the secretary general of the Arab League (AL) will attend the meeting.

The meeting will conduct comprehensive and in-depth discussions on areas such as consolidating the traditional friendship between China and Arab countries, and advancing the construction of the BRI.

Jointly promoting a new type of international relations and "a community of shared future for mankind," and other international and regional issues of common concern will also be discussed.

The Palestinian issue is always on the table of the CASCF, AL Assistant Secretary General Hossam Zaki said in an interview, as the AL prepares for the meeting.

Zaki is focused on issues such as Arab-Sino trade cooperation and China's investment in Arab countries, hoping that China would help the Arab countries build their unfinished infrastructure and open its markets to more Arab products.
