China urges restraint over Syria tensions, calls for calm

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi urged restraint on Thursday in the growing tensions over Syria, saying any military intervention in the crisis would only worsen turmoil in the Middle East.


The Chinese FM said military action would not help, but also repeated that China opposed anyone using chemical weapons. "A political resolution has, from the very beginning, been the only way out for the Syrian issue," Wang said in a statement on the ministry's website. (Reuters)
