Beijing: China says it is the West that should be blamed for obstructing diplomatic and political efforts to restore order and peace in Syria.
The US and other nations have criticized China and Russia for using their veto power at the UN Security Council to block strong Western- and Arab-backed action against President Bashar Assad.
China blamed the US for the failure to stop the crisis in Syria.
But Wang Kejian, a deputy director of north African and west Asian affairs at the Chinese Foreign Ministry, told a news conference Saturday that some Western countries had hindered and sabotaged the political process by advocating regime change.
Wang reiterated China’s stance that the solution to the Syria crisis should be a political one and its opposition to any military intervention.
