|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hong Lei's Remarks on the Situation in Syria|
Q: It is reported that the UN Security Council failed to reach an agreement on a presidential Press Statement condemning Syria. What is China's comment?
A: On the early morning of April 28 Beijing time, the UN Security Council held an informal consultation and open meeting on the Syria issue. Some countries expressed reservations about the Security Council issuing a presidential Press Statement on the situation in Syria and no agreement was reached. China participated in relevant discussions with a constructive attitude. We hold that all parties in Syria should resolve differences through political dialogue and tackle the current crisis appropriately in a bid to maintain national stability and normality.
