Adjust font size:

China welcomed the signing of a peace plan by Georgia and Russia over the conflicts in South Ossetia and the pull-out of military from the area, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

Spokesman Qin Gang made the remarks at a regular press conference when responding to a reporter's question.

Qin said China hoped the ceasefire would help all parties concerned to peacefully resolve the conflicts through dialogues and finally find a proper solution.

He added that the current priority was to ensure peace and stability in the area and the tranquility of the people there.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev last Saturday signed a French-brokered peace plan for settling the conflict between Georgia and its breakaway region of South Ossetia, while Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili had signed the peace plan last Friday.
