China Says Strikes On Syria Violate International Law

China's foreign ministry the weekend's missile attacks on Syria violated the basic principles of international law and called for a full, fair and objective investigation into chemical weapon attacks in syria.

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying added in the daily news briefing that the international community should not speculate until the results of the probe by the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons are released.

U.s., British and French forces struck Syria with more than 100 missiles in the coordinated western strikes against the Damascus government.
