The United Arab Emirates (UAE) supports the stability in Syria and the country needs to overcome its political crisis, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan said Sunday.

Sheikh Mohammed, who is also deputy supreme commander of the UAE's armed forces, made the remarks at a meeting with visiting Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem, the state news agency WAM reported.

The crown prince said that the UAE keenly followed the latest developments in Syria as part of its commitment to the interests of Syria and its people, according to the report.

"He also stressed that the demands of reform and the need for stability can go hand in hand as they can be reconciled," the report said.

During the meeting, al-Moallem briefed Sheikh Mohammed on the current situation in Syria, WAM said.

Syria has been in unrest for more than two months after the anti-government demonstrations broke out in the southern province of Daraa. The protests have spread to several other Syrian cities, leading to the death of dozens of protesters and security forces.
