Washington, Sep 20: China has said it will play a constructive role at the UN over the ongoing Syrian chemical weapons’ usage issue.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi pledged Thursday that China will play “a positive and constructive role” at the United Nations in helping resolve the crisis over Syria’s chemical weapons, Xinhua reported.
Speaking to reporters after holding talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry, Wang said they had “in-depth” exchange of views on the Syrian issue.
He expressed the hope that the ongoing talks in the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) would soon yield results, by reaching an agreement on starting the process of verifying and destroying Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons.
“The UN Security Council should politically recognise and support such agreement. It should be united, instead of being divided, and speak with one voice. China is willing to play a positive and constructive role,” Wang said.
