CHINA URGES CALM BE­FORE UN PROBE

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

There should be no rush to force the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil into ac­tion against Syria un­til a probe by UN ex­perts into sus­pected chem­i­cal weapons use is com­plete, said China’s for­eign min­is­ter.

In re­marks re­ported by Xin­hua on Fri­day, Wang told UN Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral Ban Ki-moon in a phone call that uni­lat­eral ac­tion will not help mat­ters and that China fully sup­ported an in­de­pen­dent and ob­jec­tive in­spec­tion free from out­side pres­sure.

“Be­fore the in­ves­ti­ga­tion finds out what re­ally hap­pened, all par­ties should avoid pre­judg­ing the re­sults and cer­tainly ought not to force­fully push for the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil to take ac­tion,” Wang said.

Mil­i­tary force would not help re­solve the Syr­ian is­sue and only worsen tur­moil in the Mid­dle East, Wang said.
