UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- China on Friday donated 200, 000 U.S. dollars to two UN trust funds to support the world body's efforts on international affairs.

Wang Min, China's deputy permanent representative to the UN, presented a 200,000-dollar check to B. Lynn Pascoe, the Under- Secretary-General of the United Nations for Political Affairs at the UN headquarters in New York.

The donation goes to the Trust Fund for Preventive Action and the Trust Fund in Support of Political Affairs, 100,000 dollars for each.

China supports solving disputes through dialogue and negotiation in a peaceful way, said Wang, adding that the United Nations plays an important role on preventative diplomacy and political mediation.
