BEIJING, August 16, /ITAR-TASS/. Chinese president Xi Jinping said Saturday efforts should be made to prevent Ukraine from falling into humanitarian crisis, Xinhua reported.
When meeting with Ban Ki-moon, secretary-general of the United Nations, Xi described the crash of a Malaysian plane in eastern Ukraine as an imperative to properly address the Ukrainian crisis, the agency said.
On July 17, Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, a Boeing 777 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala lumpier, went down in eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board. The cause of the incident remains unknown and the investigation cannot go smoothly due to the armed conflicts in the region.
Xi urged all parties to negotiate for a programme that could take into consideration the interests of all parties in a balanced manner, Xinhua reported.
He stressed that China continues to support the UN to play a major part in the process.
Ban Ki-moon said that a political solution, rather than use of force, is the only right way to resolve the Ukrainian issue. The United Nations appreciates China's stance on the issue and hopes China will continue playing a constructive role in advancing dialogue and addressing the Ukrainian crisis in a peaceful way, the Xinhua agency reported.
