BEIRUT - Syria's Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said on Saturday he recognized the importance of a statement from world powers after talks in Vienna seeking an end to the country's war, state television said.

World powers and regional rivals called following Friday's talks for a nationwide truce and the renewal of stalled UN-brokered talks.

During a meeting with United Nations envoy Staffan de Mistura, Moualem also reiterated Damascus's position that the fight against "terrorism" must take priority for a political solution to be reached. Syria's government refers to all rebels fighting it as terrorists.
