Imposing pressure only on one party won't help resolve Syrian issue: China
Geneva, Aug. 4 (Xinhua-ANI): Putting pressure only on one party won't help resolve the Syrian issue, instead, it will only derail the issue from the track of political settlement, Wang Min, China's deputy permanent representative to the UN, said here Friday after the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution condemning the Syrian government.
"What has happened proves that imposition of pressure only on one party will not help resolve the Syrian issue, on the contrary, it will only derail the political settlement of the issue, cause further escalation of turmoil, and let the crisis spill over to other countries in the region, thus jeopardizing regional peace and stability," Wang said after voting against the resolution.
The UN General Assembly adopted on Friday a resolution condemning the Syrian authorities' increasing use of heavy weapons as well as continued widespread and systematic gross violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms.
Drafted by Saudi Arabia with support of other Arab nations, the resolution received 133 votes in favor, 12 against and 31 abstentions
"China opposes and condemns all forms of terrorism and violence against innocent civilians. We urge all parties concerned in Syria to immediately and completely cease violence and create conditions for a political settlement to the crisis," said the Chinese envoy.
He also stressed that the Syrian issue must be resolved through political means, and military means would go nowhere. (Xinhua-ANI)
