China is willing to offer assistance within its capacity to help Egypt overcome its current difficulties, said Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Jiang Yu in Beijing Thursday.

The recent establishment of the new government of Egypt is an important step to restore social order and maintain economic development, Jiang said at a regular press briefing.

According to her, Vice Chinese Foreign Minister Zhai Jun is now visiting Egypt as part of his four-nation tour in the region, which also includes Algeria, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia.

While commenting on the situation in Libya, Jiang said the constant turbulence in the country was not in the common interests of the region or that of the international community.

China hopes the international community can work together to ensure peace and stability in the Middle East, she said.

Jiang added that China also hopes all related sides in Libya can seek solutions through peaceful means including dialogue to prevent further casualties.
