KUWAIT - Kuwait's foreign minister said in a meeting with his Chinese counterpart he hoped Beijing would support Kofi Annan's peace plan for Syria, state-run news agency KUNA reported on Thursday.

Outrage at last Friday's massacre in the Syrian town of Houla has led a host of countries to expel senior Syrian diplomats and to press Russia and China to allow tougher action by the UN Security Council.

"(He said) he hopes China would show support for the joint UN-Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan's plan, aimed at bringing the violence in Syria to a halt," KUNA said.

Kuwait's Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled al-Sabah made the comments during a bilateral meeting with China's Yang Jiechi on the sidelines of a China-Arab cooperation forum in Tunis, KUNA said. The two men also discussed the agenda of next week's Arab League meeting in Doha, it added.
