Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar arrived in Beijing on Wednesday to meet with Chinese officials and attend a forum of Arab governments, an official said. A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said Tuesday that Zahar would meet with his Chinese counterpart, Li Zhaoxing, and attend meetings as part of the Sino-Arab Cooperation Forum. Israel has formally protested China's invitation to Zahar, but spokesman Liu Jianchao said Tuesday that China hopes their differences will not affect bilateral relations.
