BEIJING, March 18, 2011 (KATAKAMI.COM)  – China says it has “serious reservations” about a United Nations resolution authorizing a no-fly zone over Libya and military action to protect civilians against Moammar Gadhafi’s forces, AP reported on Friday.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement Friday that China opposes using military force in international relations.

The ministry says China has consistently stressed respect for Libya’s sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity and that the crisis should be resolved through dialogue.
