CHONGGING, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. China hopes “the Ukrainian people will resolve the situation in the country peacefully, through consultations, with the use of rational methods and within the law,” Deputy Foreign Minister Cheng Guoping told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The Chinese People’s Republic closely follows the situation in Ukraine,” he said. “Of course, it is a great pity that the situation in Ukraine at the moment does not fit within normal legal framework, and that it has resulted in an abnormal change of political regime,” the diplomat said.
“As for the Chinese government, I can say that we are fundamentally against interference in Ukraine’s political affairs by foreign states. The Ukrainian people must settle the emerging contradictions by themselves”, Cheng Guoping said.
