Beijing: The last four Chinese UN military observers finished their mission in Syria and returned to Beijing Saturday.

The observers were among the last UN military observers in the country after the UN Security Council ended its 120-day observer mission there Aug 19, reported Xinhua.

A total of nine Chinese officers worked on the UN observer mission and the other five had returned to China in July.
On Aug 17, the Security Council agreed to replace the observer mission in Syria with a small civilian liaison office in Damascus.
