Chinese High Ranking Official Calls for Joint Efforts to Secure Substantial Progress in Syria Peace Talks

A senior Chinese diplomat called on the Syrian government, the opposition, as well as factions of the opposition to join their efforts to realize national reconciliation by prioritizing the interests of the whole country and its people on Friday, one day after the new round of peace talks on Syria kicked off in Geneva.

In a bid to secure substantial progress from this round of peace talks, all stakeholders should make more compromise, seek cooperation, and “beat their swords into plowshares”, Xie Xiaoyan, Chinese government’s special envoy on Syria, wrote in a signed article published in People’s Daily.

In the article titled “A restart of Syrian political agenda”, Xie said that “the war can never put the conflicts into an end, while military fight will never bring peace either”.
