China on Saturday praised a United Nations resolution calling for an immediate end to the war between Israel and Hizbullah as a good foundation for future peace in the Middle East. The resolution was unanimously adopted by the UN Security Council late Friday night and is seen as the best chance yet for peace after more than four weeks of fighting.
