BEIJING - China said on Thursday that the outside world should not interfere in strife-torn Syria's internal affairs but instead play a "constructive role" in helping it return to peace and stability.

This week, the European Union put into effect a broad range of sanctions against Syria, including asset freezes and travel bans, aimed at forcing the country to end violence against anti-government protesters.

"Syria is an important country in the Middle East. We hope it can remain stable, and that all sides can, via political dialogue, resolve their differences and avoid bloodshed," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told a regular news briefing.
