WASHINGTON, June 14 (Xinhua) -- The United States wants to see the "full implementation" of a peace plan for Syria brokered by UN- Arab League joint envoy Kofi Annan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said here on Thursday.
"I think our strategy is very clear. We want to see an end to the violence and we want to see the full implementation of Kofi Annan's plans, including the political transition," the top U.S. diplomat told reporters after foreign and defense ministers of the United States and the Republic of Korea (ROK) concluded their talks in Washington.
Clinton said Washington is working on multiple fronts to this end, including consulting with the United Nations, its allies and partners, and the Syrian opposition "on the best way forward."
She said she looks forward to talking to Annan in the days ahead about setting parameters for a proposed international conference on Syria.
"We have to do everything we can to end the violence and create a framework for a transition," she added.
Annan proposed last week to set up an international contact group to bring together key countries to help put an early end to the Syrian conflict, while Russia proposed an international conference on Syria last Saturday.
According to Clinton, Annan has discussed the conference with her, and is also discussing with many international partners.
China is open to proposals on convening an international conference on Syria or establishing a contact group on Syria, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said on Thursday.
He said the international conference on Syria should become the "only framework" toward resolving the crisis in Syria and the only platform to implement the UN Security Council resolutions on Syria.
China advocates the international community adhering to the general direction of seeking a political solution to the Syrian conflict, Liu added.
Meanwhile, Clinton revealed that her deputy William Burns had a "constructive" meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Kabul on Thursday, adding that President Barack Obama will meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit to be held on June 18-19 in Los Cabos, Mexico.
