China, Russia in ‘close coordination’ on Syrian issue: Beijing

Chinese President Hu Jintao (R) and Russian President Vladimir Putin attend a welcoming ceremony upon the arrival of the Russian president in Beijing, June 5, 2012.

China says Beijing and Moscow are in “close communication and coordination” regarding the Syrian issue and that both countries are against foreign intervention in the Arab state.


“On the Syrian issue, China and Russia have stayed in close communication and coordination both in New York, Moscow and Beijing,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin told reporters in Beijing on Tuesday.

Weimin also stated that the position of both China and Russia is “clear to all, there should be an immediate end to violence and the political dialogue process should be launched as soon as possible.”

“China and Russia share the same position on these points and both sides oppose external intervention into the Syrian situation and oppose regime change by force.”
Weimin made the remarks on the day when Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in China for a three-day visit to attend a regional security summit and hold talks with Chinese officials over strategic and energy cooperation.
The development comes at a time when some Western governments have called for the overthrow of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
However, the Russian president is against the Western demands and has called for action in “an accurate, balanced manner” in Syria.
Russia and China vetoed a Western-backed draft resolution on Syria at the UN Security Council on February 4. The two permanent members of the UNSC rejected the draft as “unbalanced.”
Moscow and Beijing also vetoed a European-drafted UN Security Council resolution against Syria on October 5, 2011.
Meanwhile, armed groups continue attacks inside Syria despite a ceasefire that took effect on April 12 and was part of a six-point peace plan presented by the UN-Arab League envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan, in March.
On June 4, a new Syrian opposition group, known as the Syrian Rebels Front, announced its formation at a news conference in Turkey.
In addition, the armed rebels fighting the Syrian government say they are no longer committed to the Annan plan in Syria.

  1. FROM CAROL HERMANSometimes, ya just gotta read between the lines. Syria did NOT join the fight, when Israel spent 3 weeks bantiig the trap. The IDF “jab” stuff at least contains clues that Israel does not want to keep anything in lebanon. And, that nasrallah has competition now, in the Bakakta Valley. Like it or not. The french are showing up. Where they’re known as the “masters” in this part of the world, anyway. Except for iran, france is “one of these people.” So french. A real paris on the mediterrainean. With a few setbacks, now.What you also see is that nasrallah and assad aren’t “pals.” And, assad’s angry at the intrusion. Because all of a sudden there are new middle-men; where he once had a free trade zone. Pushing hash hish, and all sorts of other contraband through to his “customers.” There’s a lot of shaking “out” going on inside those tents, folks.And, not all the partners are happy, happy. These goons tend to shoot each other over profits, as well. So just stand back.lebanon is far away from it’s old $4.5 billion tourist industry. And, the shi’a. Many of them. Now have nowhere to live in lebanon. And, they’re about as welcome as arafat’s old fishes.You’ve just got to let the gangs work this out. Maybe? The better question is: WHO IS THE GODFATHER IN THE SHADOWS? Is it Chirac? I wouldn’t be surprised.Some day, ahead, Olmert will turn out to have been a prophet, in how he handled things. While looking weak. And, fooling ALL of his enemies. Don’t be so fast writing conclusions, before you know all the facts.

  2. Anonymous,I fear you’ll have a hard time challenging yianhntg by calling yourself anonymous. If I may encourage you to use your first name so I could keep track of who’s who, that would be most helpful. I have no way of knowing which anonymous commentator you are otherwise.I wonder why you feel the need to psychoanalyze me. I’m quite sure there are many wonderful Arabs. I’ve never suggested that Arabs are all the same. In fact, I have several dear friends who are Arabs, Middle Eastern, Druze, etc. As for Jews being pro-Israel the bulk are, especially in Israel. That’s merely a reality largely ingrained in a quest for human survival. Would you expect an Israeli to want to see the destruction of their nation-state that they built from swamp and dirt?I find it questionable that you’re so offended I’m pointing to the inhumane treatment Jews suffered under Syria’s regime. Should I ignore that to appease anonymous commentators such as yourself? Should I deny my heritage to appease your distaste for Israel?Peace is mirage if you expect the bulk of Israeli Jewry to hide what they went through under Arab nationalist regimes. I haven’t an ounce of European blood. So when anti-Zionists and/or anti-Semities tell me to go back to Europe, I can only conclude that they don’t know the realities of what Mizrahi Jewry faced in their native lands or that they are hateful. I hope it’s the former as ignorance, through education, can be corrected. With best regards,Reut R. Cohen
