Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao said on Tuesday that his country supported Syria's rights to the Golan Heights, Syrian news agency SANA reported. The government-controlled service also claimed that, in a meeting with Syrian Deputy Premier for Economic affairs Abdullah Dardari, Jiabao expressed China's commitment to boosting ties with Syria and developing them in all areas. Last year China upset Israel by inviting the foreign minister of the Hamas-led PA government - boycotted by Israel and the West - to attend a conference in Beijing. China is Israel's third-largest trading partner, following the United States and Germany. AP coutributed to this report
