This is according to Chinese Ambassador to Belgrade Wei Jinghua.

In an interview for the Belgrade-based daily Vecernje Novosti, the Chinese ambassador said that his country is consistent in its support to a dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina which would render a mutually acceptable solution to the Kosovo issue.

Wei pointed out that China will back all actions aimed at re-initiation of the dialogue and talks, and added that Beijing believes that UN Security Council Resolution 1244 provides a basis for solving the Kosovo issue.

He assessed that it would be best to use the opportunity which has presented itself with the adoption of the Serbia-EU resolution on the ICJ advisory opinion on Kosovo in the UN General Assembly and restart talks between the Serbian and the Albanian side concerning all relevant matters.
