China called on relevant parties to conduct an objective and fair investigation into the Nord Stream natural gas pipeline explosions incident and supported the accelerated investigation process to find out the truth, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Wednesday.

Noting that the United Nations (UN) Security Council on Tuesday debated Russia's request for an inquiry into the explosions that blew up the Nord Stream natural gas pipelines last September, Wang said as the most authoritative and representative international institution, the UN can play an active and constructive role in conducting international investigations.
