Monday, January 07, 2013

China will welcome any solution that is generally accepted by all parties in Syria to end the violence there, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Monday.

"The violence has brought grievous suffering to the Syrian people. A solution must be found as soon as possible," spokesman Hong Lei said at a daily press conference, adding that a political solution is the only practical method to end the fighting.

"China urges both the Syrian government and the opposition to prioritize the fundamental and long-term interests of the Syrian people and put an early end to the violence," said the spokesman.
