US Secretary of State John Kerry and King Salman of Saudi Arabia called for greater international efforts to restore stability to Syria without President Bashar al-Assad at its helm.

State Department spokesman John Kirby said the two countries backed the aim of a "unified, pluralistic and stable country for all Syrians.

Both sides noted the importance of mobilizing the international community to support this goal and reiterated the need for a transition away from Assad.

Kerry flew in to Riyadh from Amman where he held separate talks with Jordan's King Abdullah the 2nd and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on Palestinian-Israeli unrest.
