China Condemns US, British Air Strikes on IraqChina Saturday condemned the US and British warplanes' strikes against Iraq and expressed deep regret over casualties of Iraqi civilians.
Foreign ministry spokesman Zhu Bangzao made the remark in response to a request for comments on the US and British warplanes' air raids on the evening of February 16 on targets south of Baghdad, causing casualties of civilians.
Zhu said, "We condemn the air attacks launched by the United States and Britain against Iraq, and express deep regret over the deaths and injuries of innocent civilians resulting from the action."
He said China has always maintained that Iraq's sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence should be respected.
The US and British warplanes' bombing in Iraq will harm the international community's efforts to solve the issue of Iraq, he said.
The spokesman called on the United States and Britain to stop their military actions in Iraq immediately so as to create a favorable atmosphere for the upcoming dialog between Iraq and the UN Secretary-General.
