BEIJING - The world should act with greater urgency to support the mediation efforts of the UN-Arab League's Syria peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi as the situation is worsening, state media quoted China's foreign minister as saying on Wednesday.

Yang Jiechi also repeated a call for all sides in the Syria conflict to cease fire immediately and take steps towards forming a transitional government, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

"The international community should fully cooperate with and support envoy Brahimi's mediation efforts with a more intense sense of urgency and responsibility," the report cited Yang as telling Brahimi during a meeting in Beijing.
