Envoy Bouthaina Shaaban’s interview with the state-run China
Daily was the first public comment from her trip to Beijing,
where she arrived on Tuesday, and she sought to cast China as a
steadfast friend of President Bashar al-Assad’s government,
beset by a civil war with opposition forces.

“We’re happy to see countries like China and Russia, who are
not colonisers or deal with people as colonisers,” Shaaban told
the English-language newspaper, adding that this is “a very
different stance from the West”.

She said her visit would give “the Chinese leadership a real
picture of what’s going on in Syria”.
