BEIJING, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. China supports Ukraine’s efforts to preserve stability in the republic, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Wednesday.
She commented on the resignation of Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov and the abrogation of nine out of 12 laws, which had been approved on January 16.
“China is Ukraine’s strategic partner. We watch the situation in the country. Beijing respects the people’s choice and supports the government’s and the Ukrainian people’s efforts to preserve stability,” the spokesperson said.
“The parties involved in confrontation will act to meet the interests of the country and the population.” “We hope that the dialogue and accord will help maintain stability and normalize the situation in Ukraine,” she said.
