Syrian Vice President Farouq al- Shara met visiting Chinese special envoy to the Middle East Wu Sike on Monday to discuss bilateral relations, the Middle East peace process and the situation in the region.

Al-Shara welcomed the Chinese envoy's visit, saying it shows that China is interested in the relationship with Syria. He added that Syria highly appreciates China's great achievements in political, economical and social domains, noting that his country is willing to boost friendship and cooperative relations with China in all fields.

The vice president expressed his appreciation of China's long- time support for Syria and Arab states in regaining their legitimate rights. He hoped that China plays a positive role in the Middle East peace process.

Wu said China is deeply concerned with the impact of the region 's current developments on the Middle East peace process.

The Syrian-Israeli talks are part and parcel of the Middle East peace process, he said, pointing out that there will be no lasting peace in the region without peace between Syria and Israel.

China would seek to convince all concerned parties to resume peace talks to achieve peace and stability in the Middle East, Wu said.

China attaches great importance to Syria's important role in the regional and international affairs, Wu said, stressing that Beijing is keen in developing its relations with Damascus in all fields and enhancing coordination and cooperation on regional and international affairs.

"Whatever changes the region would witness, China will keep its policy of boosting ties with the states in the region, including Syria,'' he said.

Damascus is the third leg of Wu's Middle East tour, which also includes trips to Israel and some Arab countries.
