UN action on Syria should comply with UN Charter: China


11:02, February 14, 2012

UNITED NATIONS, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- China on Monday called for "positive and constructive role" of the international community on Syria, saying that the UN action on Syria "should comply with the purposes and principles of the UN Charter" and the basic norms guiding the international relations.

Wang Min, China's deputy permanent representative to the UN, made the statement as he was addressing the UN General Assembly, which met on Monday to discuss the human rights situation in Syria.

"The international community should play a positive and constructive role," Wang said. "The actions of the United Nations on the Syrian issue should comply with the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and the basic norms governing international relations, help ease the tensions, help promote political dialogue and defuse disputes, and help maintain peace and stability in the Middle East region, rather than complicate the issue," he said.

"China consistently maintains that constructive dialogue and cooperation is the only right way to promote and protect human rights," Wang said, adding that China has been all along closely following the developments in Syria.

China has carefully studied the report of the UN Human Rights Council on Syria, and "listened attentively" to the Monday briefing to the 193-member General Assembly on Syria by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, he said.

"We support the good offices made by the Arab League and Arab countries to resolve the Syrian issue peacefully and properly, so as to promote early launch of an inclusive political process led by the Syrian people and extensively participated by all parties, resolve differences and disputes through dialogue and negotiations, and restore stability in Syria," he said. "That is in the common interests of Syria, Arab countries and the international community. "
