BERLIN, November 22. /TASS/. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier believes the international community should work out a transitional plan to launch a political process in Syria.

"We want to achieve a political solution that envisages the transition of power in Syria," the diplomat told a forum on the settlement in Syria in Berlin.

"We must try to create anew the missed conditions to achieve this," Steinmeier said, marking a need to establish at least short-term humanitarian pauses for supplying the local population and creating a mechanism that will give an opportunity to bring all parties to the negotiating table".

"We should create an environment for once again having at the negotiating table those, who have once sat at it. They have nothing else left but to follow this difficult path," Steinmeier said.

At the same time, he urged "the Syrian authorities and all those who support them" to stop bombardment of civilian facilities in Aleppo.

The foreign minister said the conflict in Syria is no longer a civil war, as it engages foreign players, which "makes the intra-Syrian settlement impossible as of the present day".
