BEIJING (AP) — The U.S.-Russia deal on chemical weapons in Syria is going over well in China.
Beijing is welcoming the agreement, calling it a peaceful solution to the stockpile issue that could ease the tense situation in the war-torn country.
China’s foreign minister says his government believes the deal “creates new prospects for resolving the chemical weapon issue in Syria through peaceful means.”
He spoke at the beginning of a meeting with his French counterpart, Laurent Fabius, who is visiting Beijing in a continuing diplomatic drive to end the two-and-a-half-year civil war.
France firmly backs the Syrian rebels and has strategic and historic interests in the region. It urged military action after an April 21 chemical attack in Syria.
In contrast, China and Russia have consistently blocked resolutions at the U.N. Security Council aimed at sanctioning Assad’s regime.
