China supports Russia's draft resolution on Syrian crisis: FM spokesman


20:01, December 19, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- China supports Russia's new draft for a Security Council resolution on the Syrian situation and appreciates Russia's constructive efforts to solve the crisis, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said Monday.

Liu said at a daily press conference that if the Syrian situation is discussed by the United Nations Security Council, the discussion should help ease tensions, promote political dialogue, resolve conflicts and contribute to peace and stability in the Middle East.

China has paid close attention to the development of the Syrian situation and welcomes the efforts made by the Arab League to open the political process and avoid external interference in Syria, Liu said, adding that China hopes the Syrian crisis will be resolved within the framework of the Arab League.

Russia, which is holding the rotating Security Council presidency in December, circulated an updated draft on the Syrian crisis at a closed-door meeting of the council's members held last Thursday.
