Assistant Foreign Minister Zhang Ming, as a special envoy of the Chinese government, will pay a visit to Saudi Arabia and Egypt from March 10 to 14, according to a Foreign Ministry spokesman.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin speaks at a regular press briefing.
Spokesman Liu Weimin made the announcement Friday during a daily press briefing.
Zhang will exchange views on the Syrian crisis, including China's six-point statement for a political resolution to the crisis, with regional organizations such as the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Arab League (AL), the spokesman said.
His visit is intended to push for the fair, peaceful and proper settlement of the Syrian crisis, Liu said.
Zhang will also visit France from March 14 to 16 to discuss Syria and other matters of concern, according to Liu.
Zhang's visit is intended to further strengthen communication and negotiation with relevant parties on a political resolution for the Syrian issue, Liu said.
China's six-point statement calls for ceasing all acts of violence, launching an inclusive political dialogue, supporting humanitarian relief efforts, respecting Syria's sovereignty, welcoming the appointment of the Joint Special Envoy on the Syrian crisis by the UN and the AL and ensuring that UN Security Council members abide by the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and basic norms governing international relations.
