BEIJING, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- China reiterated on Wednesday that only political solution can serve to resolve the ongoing conflict in Syria.
"We are seriously concerned about possible unilateral military actions taken by relevant countries," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said at a routine press conference in Beijing.
He noted that any actions taken by the international community should comply with the principles of the UN Charter and relevant international norms in order to prevent the situation in Syria and the Middle East from further deterioration.
Hong said China has repeatedly shown its support for an independent, objective, just and professional investigation by UN chemical weapons experts into alleged use of chemical weapons.
"No precondition or conclusion should be made prior to the release of investigation results," Hong urged.
