On Oct. 23, 2013, State Councilor Yang Jiechi met with the visiting United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres in Beijing.
Yang Jiechi said that the Chinese government is committed to the international humanitarian cause, and supports the work of the UN Refugee Agency. To fundamentally solve the problem of refugees, all countries should maintain lasting peace, promote common development, and advocate win-win cooperation. The current situation in Syria is complicated and severe, and China will continue to provide help in its power for Syrian refugees.
Antonio Guterres made positive comments on China's contribution to promoting world peace and development, agreed with China's proposition on solving the problem of refugees, and said that the UN Refugee Agency is willing to continue to strengthen cooperation with China in the field of refugees.
