Alwaght- China's Special Envoy for Syria reiterated Beijing's calls for preserving Syria's sovereignty and political solution to the war-torn country's crisis.
Speaking at a press conference in the capital Damascus, the Chinese envoy said his country has always called for preserving the territorial integrity of Syria, Xinhua Net reported.
Xie, who visited Syria on July 25-27, stressed that China rejects any fragmentation of Syria while supporting a political solution to the country's over seven-year-long crisis.
"We always say that the sovereignty, independence and its territorial integrity of Syria must be respected and preserved," he said.
The Chinese envoy said the prolonged crisis in Syria has created a tough humanitarian crisis, noting that the international community must do more to provide assistance to Syria.
He pointed out the fact that the crisis left "large destruction in Syria for both the country and the people," urging "the international community must offer more assistance to Syria in order to enable it to overcome this severe crisis."
Xie highlighted China's willingness to participate in the reconstruction process with the international community, adding that China has held a reconstruction training course for Syrian officials, business people and scholars in Shanghai in May.
He underlined that the reconstruction work takes joint efforts of the international community and should be considered a comprehensive systematic project integrated with economic development, social progress, and real reconciliation.
"we care a lot about the reconstruction process after the war and we encourage the Chinese companies to participate in this process," he said.
