UN chief Ban Ki-moon yesterday appealed to China's foreign minister to use his "influence" to help bring pressure on Syria's President Bashar al-Assad to end conflict.

China is a key player in a UN Security Council dispute over sanctions against the Syrian leader.

It has backed Russia in rejecting western demands for international action to press Assad.

UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said Ban and Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi discussed Syria in telephone talks ahead of the UN secretary general's visit to China on Monday.
