China opens up to a new dialogue concerning humanitarian aid to Syria

At this point more than 7500 people have been killed in owe the regime of Bashar al-Assad and around the world people are questioning the passivity from the UN and NATO. The situation is infected and so far there hasn’t been a new dawn in sight for the Syrian people, until now.
The Foreign minister of China’s phone to the leader of the Arab League last week may throw some new light of the UN resolution for humanitarian aid to Syria and give back some hope to the Syrian people.

For several month international organizations like the United Nations have been trying to find an end to the suffering of the Syrians and to put a stop to the intense conflict in the country. The first UN resolution was al ready proposed in October last year but was prevented by China and Russia’s veto. On the 4th of February, the both countries again made use of their veto to stop a second resolution. Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, criticised this action by calling it “despicable”. Russia and China’s actions against interfering in the Syrian conflict and by force removing the Assad regime, is due to the fact that they don’t wish an other “Libya”. Other state members of the UN Security Council argues that the veto use of China and Russia in the matter merely has to do with their own national beneficial from keeping Assad in charge .

However, a third resolution was taking form and together with the US and France putting more pressure upon China and Russia one hoped to reopen a political dialogue concerning the issue. And so, on 14th of February, China’s Vice-president Xi Jinping travelled to the United States to meet with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and without making an official statement rumours spoke about the main reason being regarding Syria. These convolutions was although some how confirmed in the report from the Xinhua news agency stating that China’s foreign minister, Yang Jiechi, later that week called the secretary general of the Arab League, Nabil al-Arabi, to announcing that China now was willing to work with the Arab nations for ”a peaceful and proper settlement of the Syria issue” and that they now were willing to endorse humanitarian aid entering Syrian. The utterance also declared that China don’t wish to see more bloodshed nor do they want Syrian citizens to suffer more than they’ve already done but yet China continues to turn down any suggestion on taking part in removing the Assad regime by force.

Chinas reasons for changing their mind in the matter of the Syrian conflict is supposedly hence embarrassment regarding the veto along with the pressure from the world around. If China in time also will reconsider the UN overthrow of the Assad regime the question remains: For how long may Russia preserve alone against a forth UN resolution?
