CAIRO - Syria is heading to a "point of no return" and national reforms must be implemented to avoid foreign interference, Egypt's foreign minister said on Tuesday after almost five months of protests and forceful efforts by Syrian authorities to suppress them.

Mohammed Kamel Amr, appointed last month in a cabinet reshuffle, said "the situation in Syria was heading to a point of no return," and called for an "immediate halt to shootings", state news agency MENA reported.

"National reforms must be implemented to avoid foreign interference in Syrian affairs," Amr was quoted as saying.
