China calls for resolving Syrian crisis under AL framework


21:25, November 28, 2011

BEIJING, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- China said on Monday that the Syrian crisis should be resolved under the framework of the Arab League (AL).

"It accords with the common interests of Syria, Arab countries and the international community," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hong Lei said at a daily press briefing.

China hopes the AL and Syria can strengthen communication and coordination in order to properly resolve relevant issues in line with the fundamental interests of the Syrian people, Hong said.

He also called on the two sides to consider the peace and stability of the Middle East and prevent outside interference.

The AL decided Sunday to immediately impose sanctions on Syria as Damascus missed the deadline to allow an observer mission into the violence-hit country.

The sanctions included a travel ban on senior Syrian officials, the suspension of business with the Syrian Central Bank and the freezing of the Syrian government's funds in the Arab countries.
