08:25, September 16, 2011

BEIJING, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- China said on Thursday that further action by the international community should help ease the tension in Syria.

"Whether the international community should take further action or not depends on whether the action will help ease the current tensions, promote the solution of disputes through political dialogues and maintain peace and stability in the Middle East," said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu.

Jiang made the remarks at a regular press briefing regarding the measures the international community should take to resolve the Syrian crisis.

She said that the key to resolving tensions in Syria lies in the country itself.

"We hope the international community will follow the principles of the UN Charter and give full respect to Syria's sovereign independence and territorial integrity," she said.
