BERLIN, September 2. /TASS/. The German government believes that Russia plays an extremely important role in resolving the Syrian crisis, German Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer told a news conference in Berlin on Wednesday.

"Russia plays a very important role," he said. According to Schaefer, the efforts of the international community to resolve the crisis have been deadlocked to date "because of the issue of the political future of President [Bashar] al-Assad."

"Today we do not have a common stance with Russia on this issue," the spokesman said. He noted that, with the participation of Russia and the countries of the region, including Iran, "it was necessary to find a solution before the collapse of the Syrian state institutions occurred."

Schaefer pointed to the importance of establishing the national transitional government, which "will put an end to what was happening in Syria before." "Negotiations will continue, we will not dilute our efforts," he said, adding that German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier "held intense negotiations [on the issue] in recent months with Russian Foreign Minister [Sergey Lavrov].".
