BEIJING, June 21 (Xinhua) -- China on Friday reaffirmed its constructive role in addressing the Syrian conflict, urging all relevant parties concerned to cease fire and stop the violence immediately.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei made the remarks in response to a question regarding a U.S. statement saying the country had reached a consensus with China on the Syria issue.

"China has always stressed to solve the Syrian conflict through political means," Hong said.

"Under the current situation, the most pressing task lies in commitments of relevant parties of Syria to cease fire and stop the violence, and seriously implement relevant UN resolutions and the six-point peace plan sponsored by Kofi Annan," said the spokesman.

China pressed for a start of inclusive political dialogue without preconditions and pre-set results as soon as possible, Hong said.

The country hopes to work with the international community to play a constructive role in political, appropriate and comprehensive settlement of the Syrian conflict, he added.
