Chinese Foreign Ministry Ma Zhaoxu said on Wednesday that China hopes Libya can realize smooth political transition.
He said China pays attention to the grave changes of the situation in Libya, and respects the choice made by the Libyan people.
China hopes to further promote economic and trade cooperation with Libya, said Shen Danyang, spokesman of the Ministry of Commerce, on Wednesday.
"We hope that Libya will restore stability as soon as possible, and we are willing to play an active role in Libya's reconstruction along with the international community," Shen said at a press conference.
