UNITED NATIONS, A Chinese envoy to the United Nations, said that, Syria's constitutional committee must be formed in a steady and orderly manner. Resolving differences requires all parties to work together, and meet each other half-way, said Ma Zhaoxu, China's representative to the United Nations.
While forming the constitutional committee, a balance must be struck between the legitimate concerns of the Syrian government and those of the other parties, in order to make it representative and acceptable to all, Ma told the Security Council.
Participants to the intra-Syrian talks, in Russia's Sochi in Jan, agreed to set up a constitutional committee for drafting a new constitution.
The international community should push for the revitalisation of a Syrian-led and Syrian-owned political process, in which Syria's sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity must be respected, said the Chinese envoy.
Thanks to the efforts of the Syrians themselves, and the support of the international community, the situation in Syria remains stable, and a political settlement process has maintained momentum, he noted, adding that, the future of Syria will ultimately be determined by the Syrian people.
China is ready to work with the international community, to facilitate the political settlement in Syria, and to improve the country's humanitarian situation, he said.
