BEIRUT - Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said on Friday international efforts should focus on preventing insurgents from infiltrating from Turkey and Jordan to achieve progress towards a political settlement in Syria.

State media, which flashed the comments Moualem made after meeting a senior Chinese official during a visit to Beijing, quoted him as saying he stressed the need to "implement UN Security Council resolutions on fighting terror".

Moualem said on Thursday Syria was ready to take part in peace talks in Geneva and hoped that the dialogue would help it form a national unity government.
