China says it will make efforts on Syria reconstruction

China says it will make efforts on Syria reconstructionChina hopes Syria can show “flexibility” in promoting peace talks, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Friday in a meeting with an adviser to Syria’s president, adding that China would help with its reconstruction. Syria’s six-year-old civil war has killed hundreds of thousands of people, forced millions to flee in the worst refugee crisis since World War Two and embroiled regional and world powers.
