China calls for int'l efforts to resolve Russia-Georgia conflict
Adjust font size:

China voiced hope on Thursday the international community could "create favorable conditions" to promote a peaceful resolution to the Russia-Georgia conflict through dialogue.

"If the international community as well as the United Nations gets involved in the issue, (their efforts) should represent the consensus of the major concerning parties and be helpful to the peaceful resolution of the conflict through dialogue and consultation," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said at a routine press conference.

She also called on the international efforts to be conducive to the peace and stability in the South Ossetia region.

Russia's recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, two breakaway regions of Georgia, as independent states last week, further increased tension in the region.

The conflict began early last month when Tbilisi sent in troops to reclaim South Ossetia. Russia quickly mounted a counter-offensive by sending in its forces to drive out the Georgians. The fighting ended with a ceasefire agreement brokered by France.
