China Expresses Concerns About Geneva II

Chinese Ambassador Liu Jieyi ON Monday (4 November) expressed concerned at the current pace of negotiations in convening the Geneva II peace conference on Syria.

Chinese Ambassador Liu Jieyi ON Monday (4 November) expressed concerned at the current pace of negotiations in convening the Geneva II peace conference on Syria.

Jieyi said that "things are not progressing as smoothly as we would wish" and urged for "efforts to be made with greater determination" to persuade the parties to go to the negotiating table "without preconditions".

On the work of Joint Mission of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the United Nations overseeing the destruction of Syria's weapons programme, the Chinese Ambassador saw "good progress on the ground" and said he hoped "the positive momentum generated will continue."

He noted the "very constructive role" played by China, including through the participation of experts, and added that China was also "prepared to help with financial aspects of the elimination process."

On the situation in the Middle East, Jieyi said "all important players should work together to move the process forward."

He said he expected "the Security Council will play a constructive role" but added that the Council "is only as good as its members" and pointed out that this issue has been in its agenda for decades.

On the current P5+1negotiations over Iran's nuclear programme, the Ambassador said that "if the development of the situation requires Council consideration of whether or not the Council should respond to progress in the actual negotiations and dialogue in the Iranian nuclear issue, I am sure the Council will take up the issue as necessary."

China holds the rotating presidency of the Security Council for the month of November.
