China expressed support for Syria
Amid threats of a new bombing of Syria and sanctions against Russia for supporting Assad, China decided to take a more definite stance and opposed the use of force in Syria and for respecting its sovereignty.
Earlier, the Chinese foreign Ministry has already said that Assad's fate can only be decided by the Syrian people.
China opposes the use of military force in Syria. This was stated by the official representative of the foreign Ministry, Hua Chunying.
"The Chinese side has always advocated against the use of military force in international relations, advocated respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other States", — quotes RIA Novosti words Chunying.
Earlier it was reported that the President of the United States Donald trump personally told Chinese President XI Jinping on missile strikes on Syria.

The Chinese though are not directly involved in the Syrian war, but at the diplomatic level, most support actions of the Russian-Iranian coalition. Demonstration Chirata was largely right for China, as well as sending a Aug led by the aircraft carrier "Carl Vinson" to the shores of Korea. The Chinese at this time decided to take a more definite position, which however they have no obligation, however, demonstrates that creating an atmosphere of General approval of the attack on Assad, the United States failed. Of course, China is much more worried about the situation with North Korea, which after the attacks on Syria will only be more determined to develop its missile and nuclear programme, in order to be able in case of US aggression against the DPRK, to strike nuclear missile strike on South Korea or Japan. Of course, China has a small nuclear war in their backyard is not needed.
As well as you do not have direct conflict with the United States in the South China sea, therefore affirming its opposition or speaking in support of the enemies of Washington, China, however, will remain faithful to his extremely cautious foreign policy, which involves the gradual accumulation of its military-political and economic influence in neighbouring regions. This strategy has long been concerned about American hegemonistic that can attack on the DPRK, to draw China into a serious confrontation in order to inflict economic and political damage that would undermine its actual claims to global leadership.
Another aggravation is expected on 14-15 April, when North Korea starts preparations for another missile test. Official Pyongyang has already declared that will not abandon them, because first, it is the birthday of Kim Il-sung, and secondly, because the US actions prove that only by strengthening defenses of their country, you can feel safe. As already mentioned, on this account, North Korea does not consider international sanctions, though any significant obstacle to the creation of new ballistic missiles and the modernization of its nuclear mini-batons. And as is the current situation in the world, for this she has every reason.
