China says open to generally accepted solution for Syria
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.
