Chinese plan for mediation in Syria

· Four-point proposal which calls for a transitional government ·

Beijing announced a political plan to resolve the crisis in Syria. The spokesperson of the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hong Lei, described the proposal by the Chinese government, stating that  it  calls for  “a cease-fire by district and in stages” and for the creation of a transitional government. The four-point plan was presented by the special envoy to the UN and the Arab League, Lakhdar Brahimi, who two days ago met the head of Chinese diplomacy Yang Jiechi in Beijing. In the “new proposal there are constructive new suggestions such as a ceasefire region by region and phase by phase, and establishing a transitional governing body”, Hong Lei said. Among the points of the plan is the invitation to the parties involved for a concrete effort to stop the humanitarian crisis. Previously this past March China had proposed a six-point plan.
