China hopes the relevant sides remain calm and restrained and resolve their disputes through dialogue and negotiations.
"China is committed to promoting peace and stability in the Middle East. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Ming is now in Saudi Arabia and then will visit Iran. He will exchange views with both sides on the regional situation. The Chinese side in Beijing also communicated with related countries. We hope the regional tension could be eased," said Hua Chunying, Spokeswoman of Chinese Foreign Ministry.
