China: Negotiations only way to solve Syrian crisis
Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying urged US, UK and France to hold negotiations for solving crisis in Syria.
China believes that political settlement is the only viable way out for the Syrian issue. Relevant parties of the international community should continue to support the role of the UN as the main channel for mediation and make relentless effort to facilitate the final settlement of the Syrian issue, Hua Chunying said.
China believes that regarding the suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria, a comprehensive, impartial and objective investigation should be carried out to reach a reliable conclusion that can stand the test of time. Yet before that, a prejudgment should not be made, he added.
The US together with its allies the UK and France targeted the Syrian capital city of Damascus early Saturday.
The US attack on a military base in Homs, western Syria injured 3 civilians, Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) earlier reported.
