BEIJING, February 12. /TASS/. China welcomes a new ceasefire deal for eastern Ukraine reached in the Belarusian capital and hopes that all parties will thoroughly fulfil it, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Thursday, commenting on all-night negotiations between the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France.
"China welcomes and speaks highly of the consensus reached by the leaders of Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine after their talks in Minsk, and believes that this will help ease the tension in eastern Ukraine and politically resolve the Ukrainian crisis," Hua said in written comments published on the Foreign Ministry’s website.
Noting that China always maintains that political settlement of the crisis is the only way out, Hua assured that China will continue to play an active and constructive role in the political settlement of the Ukrainian crisis through dialogue and negotiation.
