China supports U.N. role in Iraq

China supported the idea of the United Nations playing an important role in the reconstruction of Iraq, Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing said Monday at a meeting in New York. Li said China supported the International Compact with Iraq and hoped that the relevant mechanisms would be widely representative and inclusive and would give full play to the leading role of the United Nations. "It is China's consistent position that the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Iraq should be upheld and that the Iraqi issue should be resolved through political means so that Iraq will be governed by the Iraqi people," he concluded.
