DAMASCUS- Syria views a US decision to halt CIA support to rebel groups fighting to topple President Bashar Assad as a "start" towards ending the six-year conflict, a government minister told Reuters.

"All these steps are the start to solving the Syrian crisis, and without that there is no solution," national reconciliation minister Ali Haidar said in an interview.

But speaking generally about the conflict, he said what was really needed was for foreign states to completely seal off borders across which arms and fighters have flowed throughout the war, which has killed hundreds of thousands of people.
