Violence raged this Friday in Syria, while China and the United Nations (UN) began with diplomatic activities to the end the government’s nearly year-old bloody crackdown against the regime’s opposition.
China has sent an envoy to the Middle East and Europe to pressure for a “fair solution” in Syria. China has recently revealed a peace plan calling for dialogue between President Bashar al-Assad and the opposition.
Assistant Foreign Minister, Zhang Ming, will begin a four-day trip on Saturday to meet with government officials of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and France.
“Zhang’s visit is intended to further strengthen communication and negotiation with relevant parties on a political resolution for the Syrian issue,” stated ministry spokesman Liu Weimin. (AV)
