16. China says not planning to send military forces to Syria

China said on Wednesday it had no plans to send its military to Syria to fight with Russian forces after reports in overseas media that it was planning to do so.

Chinese media has picked up Russian and Middle Eastern news reports that China would fight alongside Russia in Syria, and that China's sole aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, could participate too.

Chinese media has also described these reports as speculative nonsense.

"As far as I know there are no such plans," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a daily news briefing, when asked if China had or would send forces to Syria. "Recently, the Liaoning aircraft carrier went to carry out technical tests and military drills," she added, without elaborating.
