UNITED NATIONS - China on Tuesday urged all parties in Bosnia and Herzegovina to take practical initiatives to enhance mutual political trust, promote national reconciliation and work towards accelerated progress in all areas.

Wang Min, China's deputy permanent representative to the UN, made the call while addressing an open debate of the Security Council on the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Wang commended Bosnia and Herzegovina for progress made in safeguarding peace, reconstructing its economy and enhancing its building of the rule of law and hoped that the country's various ethnic groups will proceed from a concern for the well-being of the nation and its long-term interests.

"We hope that they will resolve their differences through dialogue and enhance mutual political trust, promote national reconciliation, implement the comprehensive Dayton Peace Agreement and work towards accelerated progress in all areas," he said.

"China respects the independence, sovereignty, national unity and territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as the choice made by its people for the future of their country," said the Chinese diplomat, who also expressed support for the harmonious coexistence of Bosnian ethnicities in seeking common development.

Wang added that the question of Bosnia and Herzegovina is very complex and sensitive, urging the international community to exercise prudence when dealing with the issue and listen attentively to various views and concerns of relevant parties in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
