The Chinese envoy told reporters that he’s on a mission to discuss a six-point Chinese initiative on finding a peaceful solution to the crisis. The plan calls for an immediate end to the conflict and for dialogue between President Bashar al-Assad and the opposition with a rejection of foreign interference.

Last week, China pledged to send a special envoy to Saudi Arabia, Egypt and France to explain its position on Syria.
