BEIJING - China's Foreign Ministry on Monday backed Arab League mediation in Syria but offered no clear sign of support for its call to send in peacekeepers to halt the Syrian government's violent crackdown on opposition groups.

The Arab League on Sunday passed a resolution asking the UN Security Council to authorize a joint UN-Arab peacekeeping mission to Syria.

The call adds to diplomatic pressure on Russia and China, both heavily criticized by the West for blocking a draft UN resolution calling for Syrian President Bashar Assad Assad to give up his powers.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin would not be drawn on whether Beijing supports sending in peacekeepers.
