China says the United States is "ignoring the suffering" of Muslims following Washington's move to push back a scheduled UN Security Council meeting aimed at addressing the soaring conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. The Security Council was set to hold a session, requested by China, Tunisia and Norway, on Friday on the crisis but the US, Israel's diplomatic shield at the UN, blocked it despite the deepening bloodshed. However, it was eventually agreed that the meeting will convene on Sunday. Speaking to reporters on Friday, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the US is "standing on the opposite side of the international community" and had single handedly obstructed the Security Council from speaking out on the situation in Israel and the Gaza Strip.
