Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin urged 'all parties' in Myanmar to 'exercise restraint,' during a press conference held in Beijing on Tuesday.

His comment came in the wake of anti-coup protests that have rocked Myanmar since the military took over power on February 1 and arrested de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

"As a friendly neighbour of Myanmar, China pays close attention to the current situation in Myanmar. China hopes that all parties in Myanmar will exercise restraint in the overall status of the country's development and stability, properly handle differences under the constitutional and legal framework, and maintain political and social stability," Wang Wenbin said.

The foreign ministry spokesperson also expressed Beijing's support for India in hosting this year's BRICS summit.
