China, India, Russia stress political solution to Syria crisis
NEW DELHI, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- China, India and Russia Sunday stressed the need to find a political solution to the Syria crisis, said Indian Minister of External Affairs Salman Khurshid after a trilateral foreign ministers' meeting here.
The Russian foreign minister Seigei Lavrov also said the three foreign ministers agreed that a peaceful solution, rather than military solution, is the only way to end the civil war in Syria.
Lavrov also said all three countries hope the Geneva II conference on Syria should be held as soon as possible and that U. N. inspectors should be given access to the chemical stockages.
The three foreign ministers also discussed the situation in Afghanistan.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the Afghanistan is one of the most important issues for the region.
"We hope to see a safe, stable, unified and developing Afghanistan. We actively participate in the reconstruction of Afghanistan, which is in an important period of transition," said Wang.
A smooth holding of election, an Afghan-decided peace process and U.N. action in coordinating international support to Afghanistan are key elements in a peaceful transition in the country, he said.
China will host an international conference on Afghanistan next year in Tianjin, he said.
