In response to a question about whether China has changed its stance on Syria during a regular press briefing on Tuesday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said that China’s stance on Syria remains "consistent and clear".

Hong said, "China holds the view that the international community should fully respect Syria’s sovereignty, independence, unity, territorial integrity and the independent choice of the Syrian people, as well as the results of the political dialogue among various parties in Syria.

We do not approve of an armed intervention or forcing so-called ’regime change’ in Syria. China supports Arab countries’ calls to immediately cease violence, protect Syrian civilians, offer humanitarian aid to Syria and oppose external military intervention. China hopes the issue will be resolved through political dialogue within the framework of the Arab League."
