China welcomes UN resolution on Iraq


18:20, July 02, 2013

BEIJING, July 2 (Xinhua) -- China welcomes a recent UN Security Council resolution on Iraq, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Tuesday.

The UN Security Council on Thursday eased some of its sanctions against Iraq, marking progress in resolving pending issues from the Middle Eastern country's 1990 invasion of its smaller neighbor Kuwait.

The new resolution calls for the Iraqi government to continue searching for Kuwaiti nationals and property missing since the invasion, but terminates provisions in earlier texts that allowed the military enforcement of measures under Charter VII of the UN Charter.

Hua said at a regular press briefing that China supports the UN in playing an active role in addressing relevant issue.

China attaches importance to developing relations with Iraq and is ready to boost ties on the basis of equality and mutual benefit, she said.
