Pushing the United Nations General Assembly to vote on the draft resolution concerning the question of Ukraine will only "make the situation more complex", Chinese Ambassador to the UN Liu Jieyi said.

He made the remarks during the UN General Assembly on Thursday, which later adopted a resolution that said the referendum held in Crimea on March 16 had "no validity" and called on all states and international organizations not to recognize Crimea's alternate status.

The resolution, co-sponsored by countries, such as Canada, Costa Rica, Germany, Lithuania and Ukraine, received 100 votes in favor, 11 votes against and 58 abstentions. China chose abstention.
