Beijing is pressing for talks between the Syrian government and opposition to establish a "middle way", a foreign ministry spokeswoman said, as a key opposition figure arrived in Beijing on Tuesday.

Ahmad Jarba, president of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, arrived in the capital for a four-day visit. Jarba is set to meet Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Vice-Foreign Minister Zhang Ming on Wednesday.

Talks will focus on efforts to reach a political settlement to the conflict in Syria, now in its fourth year. Chinese experts and scholars will also have the chance to interact with Jarba's delegation.
