Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hong Lei says China hopes that Turkey and Syria will maintain calm and exercise restraint in settling the dispute over the Turkish Air Force jet incident.

Speaking at a press conference in Beijing, Hong Lei urged parties concerned to handle the situation through diplomatic channels, to avoid escalating tensions. He said China is in communication with relevant parties over a possible June 30th international conference on the Syrian conflict in Geneva, and has sent officials to attend a preparatory meeting.

China believes an end to the violence in Syria will require participation and support from regional countries, particularly those that have an influence on relevant parties in the country.
