BEIJING, June 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and China oppose a foreign forced interference in Syria and imposing the policy for change of power in that country, the presidents of the countries Vladimir Putin and Hu Jintao said in a joint statement, which they signed at the end of the state visit of the Russian president to China.
“The sides noted that further development of the situation in Syria is very important for peace and stability in the Middle Eastern countries and the world in general and call decisively for the need to seek for a peaceful and fair settlement of the Syrian crisis without any interference from the outside through the stop to violence by all participants in the conflict and the establishment of a comprehensive political dialogue,” the joint statement runs.
“Russia and China oppose resolutely the attempts for a foreign forcible settlement of the Syrian crisis and imposing, particularly in the UN Security Council, the policy for the change of political rules. The sides are convinced in the need for a stronger consolidated international support of mediating efforts by UN and LAS special envoy for the settlement of the Syrian crisis Kofi Annan and the incitement of all parties to the conflict for an immediate end to the armed confrontation and the all-round fulfilment of Annan’s peace plan of six clauses and relevant UN Security Council decisions,” the presidents said in the joint statement.
