BEIJING, Feb. 6 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi met a senior Syrian diplomat in Beijing on Wednesday, saying China is open to any solution to the ongoing conflict in Syria, as long as it is widely accepted by Syrians.

"China holds an objective and justified position on Syrian issues and is positive about and open to any solution widely accepted by Syrian parties," Yang told Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Miqdad.

Miqdad came to Beijing on Monday for a four-day visit.

Yang said the situation in Syria is at a critical juncture and pushing a political solution at an early date is an urgent task.

He urged Syrian parties to decide on realistic and operable steps, start political dialogue and carry out a political transition process in accordance with the Geneva Communique issued by the Action Group for Syria.

Yang called on Syrian parties to respect the reasonable wishes and appeals of the Syrian people, deal with the political transition with a flexible and pragmatic attitude and find a solution that can fully reflect the population's wishes.

Yang also urged groups in Syria to support the mediation efforts of UN-AU joint envoy Lakhdar Brahimi.

Miqdad briefed Yang on Syria's current situation and Syria's proposal to end the conflict in phases.

According to Miqdad, the Syrian government would like to observe the spirit of the Geneva Communique, carry out its proposals and work with Brahimi and ensure the transportation of humanitarian aid throughout Syria.

Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Zhai Jun held talks with Miqdad on Tuesday.
