Syrian President in China on First Visit Since Beginning of War in Syria

  • Syrian President Bashar Assad visited China, with which Syria has a long-standing friendship, marking his first visit since the start of the conflict. China has been a key supporter of Assad throughout the Syrian conflict and has played a role in mediating between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Assad's visit highlights China's potential involvement in Syria's reconstruction, which is expected to cost billions of dollars.
  • The visit follows increased diplomatic contacts between Syria and other Arab countries, sparked by a deadly earthquake in February. Syria's membership in the Arab League was also reinstated recently, further boosting diplomatic ties.
  • Iran and Russia have assisted Assad in regaining control of much of Syria since the conflict began. Additionally, China has used its veto power at the UN multiple times to block resolutions against Assad's government. Assad's visit to China signifies strengthening alliances between the three countries.
