Beijing disapproves of military interventions in any country and that position is also consistent and clear, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a press briefing on Friday, Xinhua reported. Hua called on all Syrian parties to seek a political solution as the only correct way to resolve the crisis in the Arab country, urging an immediate end to all violence there.
" China calls on the international community to make unremitting efforts to produce a political settlement on the issue in a responsible manner, " she told reporters.
Hua said China “firmly opposes” the use of chemical weapons regardless of who uses it, describing it as a violation of “international law and principles widely upheld by the international community. ” The remarks came in response to Western countries accusing the Syrian government of using chemical weapons, and their attempts for a military option on the prolonged crisis in Syria. Meanwhile, Syrian Information Minister Umran Ahid al - Za ' bi said Damascus wants an investigation on the alleged use of chemical weapons be carried out by Russian experts. Syrian officials blame terrorist groups, including al - Qaeda, for a recent chemical shelling of a town in the flashpoint northern province of Aleppo. Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid - March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security personnel, have been killed in the violence. The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants fighting against the Syrian government are foreign nationals.
