US senator Schumer says 'very disappointed' with China statement on Israel

US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer told China’s top diplomat on Monday he was “very disappointed” by a recent statement by Beijing on the dramatic escalation of violence between Israel and the Palestinians, according to agency pool video.
