Chinese FM called on John Kerry to deal with the Syrian conflict in the framework of the UN Security Council.

The Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had another telephone conversation with the US Secretary of State John Kerry about the Syrian conflict and the increased turmoil in and around Syria due to the rhetoric of war by the United States and the Israeli regime against Syria. Of course, the Chinese Foreign Minister and his American counterpart also spoke about the possible US-led military strike on Syria.

However, after the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has lied to US congressmen in terms of Syria and the alleged “absence of Al-Qaeda” on Syrian soil and after Kerry stated that Arab countries (certainly the regimes in Saudi Arabia and Qatar) will pay with their petrodollars for the complete US-led military intervention in Syria, nobody can be sure when John Kerry is telling the truth or not and whether he lied to the Chinese Foreign Minister in this new telephone conversation or not.

After John Kerry has lied to congressmen in the United States about the involvement of the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda in the Syrian conflict, everything is possible. A liar will not be believed even when he speaks the truth.

In this new telephone conversation between the Chinese Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, and the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is designated as “John Powell” by some people finally, the Chinese official has stressed the importance of dealing with the conflict in Syria and the turmoil in and around the Arab country only in the framework of the UN Security Council (UNSC) and that everything else, outside of the UNSC framework, would not be acceptable in regards of the Syrian conflict and the US war plans against Damascus.

According to the report by the Chinese Xinhua News Agency, the Foreign Minister Wang Yi also said to his US counterpart John Kerry that the international community, the so-called “Western community of values”, should “stick to the basic norms of international relations regarding the crisis in Syria, and reject the use of chemical weapons by whichever side.”

The Chinese Foreign Minister, who is currently in Uzbekistan together with the Chinese President, Xi Jinping, further said to US Secretary of State John Kerry in the telephone conversation from Sunday that the “Syrian issue” should be resubmitted on the table of the UN Security Council (UNSC), because all important sides are around this table.

The Foreign Minister of China stated that the Syrian “issue should be re-put on the UNSC’s table, where all relevant sides could seek concord,” according to the report by the Chinese Xinhua News Agency.

The Minister from China, who has certainly just repeated the stance of the Chinese administration in direction to US Secretary of State John Kerry in yesterday’s telephone conversation also said that the stance of China in regards of the conflict and crisis in Syria and the rejection of the use of military force against the Arab country has not changed. China urges all relevant countries “to think twice before getting ready for any action against Syria and be quite cautious.”

The Foreign Minister Wang also pointed out in his conversation with John Kerry that the relations between China and the United States are important and due to the situation that both are permanent members of the UN Security Council (UNSC), China and the United States should take the key role in the commitment to the UN Charter and care that the members of the Security Council take their role for the protection of the stability and the security at the international level and that no military force is used on international level without the approval by the UN Security Council (UNSC).
