Wang Wenbin, Foreign Ministry spokesman, said Beijing also stands firm in its call for respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries, the principles and purposes of the United Nations Charter and the legitimate security concerns of each government.
However, he stressed that the Asian giant supports a peaceful resolution of any dispute and urged the UN Security Council to make good use of mediation tools, follow the right path to end the war and seek conditions conducive to a political solution.
Last week, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi urged those involved in the Russia-Ukraine conflict to avoid actions and pronouncements that would aggravate the situation, addressing a meeting on the issue at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly. He also called for greater efforts to curb the aftermath of the conflict in the world, to ensure the stability of the energy market and food distribution.
He also expressed his rejection of unilateral sanctions and that developing nations should be forced to pay the price for their imposition.
