Algeria supports efforts by Syrian parties to promote dialogue and stop the ongoing conflict, Algerian Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci said here Monday.

Medelci made the remarks at a joint press conference with his visiting Bahraini counterpart Sheikh Khaled Bin Ahmed Bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, the local APS news agency reported.

"We have no problem neither with the Syrian opposition nor with the Syrian government," said Medelci. "We support any effort emerging from inside Syria so that weapons give way to dialogue."

The Bahraini foreign minister, who was concluding a two-day visit to Algeria, said his country believes that dialogue is the sole solution to the crisis in Syria.
