`Serious reservations` about UN resolution: China

A United Nations resolution has authorised a no-fly zone over Libya.



Beijing: China says it has "serious reservations" about a United Nations resolution authorising a no-fly zone over Libya and military action to protect civilians against Muammar Gaddafi’s forces.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday that China opposes using military force in international relations.

The ministry says China has consistently stressed respect for Libya`s sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity and that the crisis should be resolved through dialogue.
China was among five countries that abstained from Thursday`s vote on the UN resolution to allow "all necessary measures" to stop Gaddafi. It was approved with the backing of the United States, France and Britain.
