Libya: Chinese Government deplores Military Strikes

Q: Multinational armed forces have begun to carry out military strikes against Libya, how does the Chinese side view this?

问:多国部队已开始对利比亚实施军事打击,中方对此有何评论?

A: The Chinese side is following the latest developments in Libya closely, and deplores the military strikes against Libya. The Chinese side has never  been in favor of using military force in international relations, has stood for adherence to the UN Charter’s purposes and principles, as well as the relevant standards of international law, respect for Libya’s sovereignty, independence, unity, and territorial integrity.

答:中方注意到利比亚局势的最新发展,对向利进行军事打击表示遗憾。中方一贯不赞成在国际关系中使用武力,主张遵循《联合国宪章》的宗旨与原则以及相关国际法准则,尊重利主权、独立、统一和领土完整。我们希望利局势尽快恢复稳定,避免武装冲突升级造成更多平民伤亡。
