SOFIA - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said here on Thursday that China will continue to help promote a political solution to the Syrian issue.

China has been promoting a political solution to the Syrian issue, and will continue to work in this direction, Wang said when answering a question at a joint press conference with his Bulgarian counterpart Daniel Mitov.

Wang said that China supported international anti-terror operations that were in line with international law and had the support of the countries involved.

"At the same time, there should be concerted international anti-terror efforts, and there should be no suspicions or finger-pointing," Wang was quoted as saying.

"Force cannot resolve the problem. A political resolution still remains the basic way (out)," he added.

He said that with the help of the United Nations, the Syrian parties will be able to sit down together at the negotiating table and find a solution in line with the country's fundamental interests.

Separately, China's Commerce Ministry said it would donate an additional 100 million yuan (US$15.7 million) to Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and other countries to help them cope with refugees from the Syrian civil war.
