China 'in agreement with Russia on Syria issue'

China's Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that both Beijing and Moscow oppose foreign intervention or a forced regime change in Syria as Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in China for a regional security summit.

Both countries have stayed in close touch on issues relating to the Syria crisis and believe there should be an immediate end to violence, adding that political dialogue should begin as soon as possible, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin announced during a routine news briefing.
