China calls on int'l community to create conditions to ease tension in Syria


09:27, November 23, 2011

UNITED NATIONS, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- China on Tuesday called on the international community to create conditions for the easing of tension in Syria as exerting pressure through country-specific resolutions is not conducive to resolving differences.

Wang Min, China's deputy permanent representative to the UN, made the remarks after the UN General Assembly Third Committee vote on the draft resolution on the human rights situation in Syria.

"China has always believed that constructive dialogue and cooperation is the only right approach to the promotion and protection of human rights," Wang said in his explanation of vote, "While exerting pressure through country-specific resolutions is not conducive to resolving differences."

China abstained from the vote of the draft resolution, which was adopted with 122 states voting in favor, 13 against, 41 abstained. The resolution "strongly condemns the continued grave and systematic human rights violations by the Syrian authorities."

Stressing that China attaches great importance to the current situation in Syria, Wang said China calls on parties in Syria "to immediately put an end to violence and launch as early as possible the inclusive and balanced political process in order to restore as soon as possible national stability and social order."

China welcomes the mediation plan of the League of Arab States, Wang said. "The international community should play a constructive role in order to create conditions for the easing of tension in Syria," he added.

Its the right time for China to call on any country to attand to their people"s crisis , especially in the middle East. Likewise, some the the financial management of Eurpoe and USA must be also a priority in looking for solution to the financial crisis. In social troucling countirs like in he meiddle east or the western countries, two main issues. 1) Leadership quality of the countries. 2) Financial and economical understanding by yhe leaders.Only politics cant solve these type of problems. You can keep changing tjhe government or the leaders, but if the lack the two mn things discribed above, the countries will go to the dustbin and becomes rubbish. The US model will fail because in the end, productivity and capital reserve growth through saving is the most powerful economic model, though sometimes its painful, but in the long run this will be the winner. Countries that grow economicall depending on borrowing to spend can not survive in the long time, sustanable debts limit plus increase productivity is a must for today"s survival for any country. The idea od "Someone else is going to pay the bill if I spend the money now" definitely can not beat " I spend the money only if I can pay it". Cheers
