According to a Foreign Ministry statement, Foreign Minister Wang Yi called on the international community to play a constructive role in achieving détente, restoring peace negotiations as soon as possible and airing each side´s concerns.
He said at the meeting on the issue that there is no room for trial and error as long as there are concerns about nuclear facilities, accident risks must be prevented.
The foreign minister insisted on focusing on the humanitarian issue and civilian deaths, after urging objective, fair, fact-based investigations purged of politicization.
