The UN special envoy for Syria called on all nations to face the Islamic State group in a "united, international way" to keep more people from joining the extremist militants.

Italian diplomat Staffan de Mistura made his remarks in an exclusive interview with China Daily after meeting with Foreign Affairs Vice-Minister Li Baodong in Beijing on Monday morning, in a joint bid to seek a political solution to the conflicts in Syria. De Mistura was appointed in July last year as the international point man to deal with the worsening Syria crisis.

The meeting on Monday came ahead of a planned presentation by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon next Wednesday on the next round of political moves related to Syria.
