Constructive Actions Hailed in Dealing with Syrian Crisis
On December 19, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted the Resolution 2328 that aims to relieve the humanitarian crisis in Syria and support UN to play a coordinative role in the future. The hard-won consensus is the first one on Syrian crisis adopted by UNSC after months of disagreement.
Humanitarian situation is severe in Syria after six years of turmoil. With basic consensus among members of the UNSC, the UN could have taken actions to relieve the crisis.
However, some countries had politicized the humanitarian issue and ignored other countries’ reasonable concerns. Such practice has detained measures that could have been taken by the UNSC. It was of no benefit for the relief of Syrian humanitarian crisis and hurt the authority of UNSC as well.
During the negotiation on the Resolution 2328, China has adopted a constructive manner and mediated among other members of the Security Council. It called on relevant parties to meet each other halfway, striving for maximum consensus.
China’s efforts have played a positive role in the negotiation: The Resolution was unanimously approved by all its 15 members of the council, which would not only relieve the humanitarian crisis in Syria, but also protect the unity and reputation of the council. The organ’s tradition to settle hot-spot issues through negotiations has been maintained, relieving the confrontation on Syrian crisis by related major countries.
UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said after the approval of the resolution that the UN hopes to start a new round of peace talks on Syrian crisis in Geneva in February. It will bring a new opportunity to the political negotiation that has been halted for nearly half a year.
International community should cherish this hard-won agreement and make positive progress on Syrian crisis, bringing peace and stability to the people who had long been tortured by wars and chaos.
