|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Jiang Yu's Remarks on the Situation in Syria|
Q: The EU recently decided to include Syrian President Bashar and other senior officials in its sanction list. What is China's comment?
A: Syria is a country of major influence in the Middle East Region. China believes that when it comes to properly handling the current Syrian situation, it is the correct direction and major approach to resolve the internal differences through political dialogue and maintain its national stability as well as the overall stability and security of the Middle East.
The future of Syria should be independently decided by the Syrian people themselves free from external interference. We hope the international community continues to play a constructive role in this regard.
