UN action on Syria should comply with UN Charter: China (2)


13:19, February 14, 2012

"Syria is an important country in the Middle East," he said. " Peace and stability in Syria serves the common interests of the Syrian people and the international community."

"We call on all parties in Syria to stop violence, avoid casualties of innocent civilians in particular, restore order in the country as soon as possible, and respect the aspirations of the Syrian people for change and protection of their own interests, " he said.

"On the Syrian issue, China neither shelters nor intentionally opposes anyone," Wang said. "China takes an objective, just and responsible approach."

"China is always committed to upholding the fundamental and long-term interests of the Syrian people, maintaining peace and stability of Syria and the region, and safeguarding the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and the basic norms governing international relations," he said.

"Our purpose is to shield the Syrian people form conflicts and warfare," Wang said.

"China always maintains that, in handling international relations, countries should refrain from resort to use or threat of force, nor should they push through regime change," he said. " China believes that sanctions and pressures are not conducive to proper settlement of problems."

"This is China's consistent position of principle and its long- standing foreign," he said. "It serves the overall interests of the international community, particularly the immediate and long- term interests of the small and medium-sized countries and developing countries."

"China has done a great deal of work to ease the situation in Syria," Wang said. "China will continue to work with other member states and play a positive role in the peaceful and proper settlement of the Syrian issue while fully respecting the sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity of Syria."
