BEIJING - China said on Tuesday the situation in Syria was worsening but that it still opposed any outside armed intervention in the country, ahead of a visit to Beijing by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

A political solution remained the only way out for Syria, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters at a daily news briefing.



"We have always believed that the only correct path must be a political resolution to the crisis. Currently, the situation is worsening, but the worse the situation, the more unity is needed," Hong said.

He also repeated Chinese opposition to any the use of chemical weapons, while restating Chinese opposition to armed intervention in Syria.
