China opposes armed intervention or forcing 'regime change' in Syria


17:01, February 17, 2012

UNITED NATIONS, Feb. 16 (Xinhua) -- China opposes armed intervention or forcing a so-called "regime change" in Syria, China's deputy permanent representative to the UN Wang Min said Thursday.

"We condemn all acts of violence against innocent civilians and urge the government and all political factions of Syria to immediately and fully end all acts of violence, and quickly restore stability and the normal social order," Wang said in explanatory remarks after casting a negative vote on a draft resolution on Syria at the UN General Assembly.

China calls on the Syrian government to seriously heed the people's legitimate desire for reform and development, and calls on the various political factions to express their political aspirations nonviolently under the rule of law, Wang said.

The Chinese government consistently pursues an independent foreign policy of peace and is committed to upholding regional and world peace and stability, Wang said, adding China has closely followed the developments of the situation and is deeply worried about the escalating crisis that has caused civilian casualties and affected peace and stability in the region.

"We urge all parties concerned in Syria to immediately launch inclusive political dialogue with no preconditions and jointly discuss a comprehensive political reform plan and mechanism," he said.

The ambassador said China calls for a referendum on the draft of a new Constitution and parliamentary election at an early date and establishment of a national unity government participated by various factions.
