  China has always opposed the easy use of force in international relations and the tension in Syria should be eased as soon as possible, President Xi Jinping said on Thursday.

Xi made the remark in phone calls with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries should be respected, Xi said, adding that the relevant sides should act in accordance with rules accepted by the international community while not escalating conflicts further.

The suspected use of chemical weapons in Syria should be investigated in a comprehensive and justified manner, Xi said.

China would like to work with parties concerned to resolve the Syrian issue properly, he said.
