BAGHDAD, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said here on Sunday that China supports and welcomes the UN Security Council's unanimous approval of a resolution that "demands rapid, safe and unhindered access" to humanitarian aid in Syria.

UN Security Council Resolution 2139 shows the international community's determination and consensus to relieve Syria's humanitarian situation, Wang told a joint press conference with his Iraqi counterpart Hoshyar Zebari.

The resolution, approved unanimously on Saturday by the 15-member Security Council, also indicates a big step forward in the process of seeking a political solution to the Syria issue, the Chinese foreign minister said.

China urges all sides in Syria to take the opportunity to ensure the implementation of the resolution and achieve ceasefire as soon as possible, he said.

"China and Syria maintain good relations," Wang said. "We can feel the sufferings of the Syrian people and always work actively to relieve Syria's humanitarian situation."

Wang said China has provided batches of humanitarian aid to the Syrian people, including the refugees living outside the country.

During the time when the draft resolution was being discussed, China played its part in helping to achieve a unanimous approval by mediating between various parties to narrow their differences, he added.
