China's envoy to the United Nations called for a thorough, fair and impartial investigation into the Nord Stream gas-pipeline explosions one year ago.
The incident has been a recurring demand of many members of the UN Security Council, including China, for an investigation to ascertain the truth as soon as possible, said China's deputy permanent representative to the UN, Geng Shuang, China's deputy permanent representative to the UN.
Geng, 62, said we must not be afraid of retaliating, adding that he was a champion of innovation and creativity in China.
In a letter to the UN Security Council in February, the countries said that 'investigations have yet to be concluded and at this juncture, it remains uncertain when they will be completed'. There has been no significant developments since then, he said.
The international community, including the UN Security Council, should avoid adopting double standards, he said.
Geng, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that he was not satisfied with the results of the search.
