BEIJING, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- A move amid differences by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on the Syrian crisis is not likely to help much improve the situation there nor avoid a politicalization of the humanitarian issue.
This was one of China's major reasons for concern as it vetoed a Security Council draft resolution on Monday calling for a seven-day humanitarian truce in the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.
While deeply concerned over the situation in Syria and feeling for the Syrian people who are suffering from the six-year armed conflict, China remains committed to an early political solution to the conflict.
To this end, China also thinks it is necessary to find a fundamental way out of the plight in the Mideast nation.
Council members maneuvered to seek a consensus on the draft resolution that specifies measures to relieve the humanitarian crisis in Aleppo. This fact further highlights the need for continued efforts to enable the Security Council to "speak with one voice and work together."
Such a united council voice and action will be deemed more powerful and conducive to improving the situation in Syria, which is as complex as it is severe.
Countries expect that the Council takes into account new developments and assists their diplomatic efforts in resolving the crisis, such as Russia's call for more time for talks this week with the United States on military moves against Syrian rebels in Aleppo.
Moreover, Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin complained that the Monday vote violated the Security Council's working procedures as it failed to give the traditional 24 hours for a draft resolution to be reviewed.
In support of any efforts toward an early political settlement of the Syrian crisis, China believes the Council's move should attach importance not only to humanitarian relief, but also to a ceasefire resumption, political peace talks and counter-terrorist cooperation.
The international community needs continued efforts to seek a solution to the Syrian crisis.
The situation in Syria, as a result of a multiplication of many factors, calls for a comprehensive, impartial and appropriate solution which should be acceptable to all the Syrian parties concerned.
While addressing the humanitarian concerns there, it is important to consider the situation as a whole.
