China hopes all relevant parties would achieve consensus on the latest draft resolution on the establishment of the UN Human Rights Council as early as possible, said Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Liu Jianchao Tuesday.
Liu said at a regular press conference that China spoke positively of important efforts Jan Eliasson, president of the 60th UN General Assembly, has made in making the draft resolution. The Chinese side will continue to participate in the next round of consultations in a constructive attitude.
"We hope all relevant parties will reach consensus on the draft resolution as early as possible and promote the establishment of a human rights council beneficial to the promotion of dialogue and cooperation," the spokesman said.
Eliasson presented to UN member states the new draft resolution on Feb. 23, and called for all the member states to take a vote on it this week.
Establishing a human rights council to replace the Commission on Human Rights is one step of the UN reform decided by the UN Summit held in September last year.
