Beijing, SANA – China has expressed rejection of any use of force in the international relations, calling for respecting sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of other states.
“ Any unilateral military action that bypasses the UN Security Council contradicts the UN Charter principles and violates norms of the international law and the basic criteria that govern the international relations and would complicate the crisis in Syria,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a press conference commenting on the US-British-French tripartite aggression on Syria.
She added that China urges the relevant parties to turn back to the international law and solve the issue through dialogue and negotiation.
With regards to the alleged chemical attack, Hua said that China called for a full, fair and objective investigation until reaching reliable results, adding that no prejudgments should be given.
She continued to say that China believes a political settlement is the only way to resolve the crisis in Syria.
