Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called on the international community on Friday to increase pressure on the Syrian administration.
Speaking at a meeting of the "Friends of the Syrian People" in French capital of Paris on Friday, Davutoglu stressed that there was a necessity to form a transitional government in Syria.
"The Syrian administration has lost legitimacy. There is a need for a transitional government in Syria to end the civil war in that country," Davutoglu noted.
In his speech, Davutoglu underlined that preparations for the post-Assad period had to begin in all fields without wasting time.
The crisis in Syria got deeper every day, he said, stating that it was important for the international community to act immediately to end the Syrian crisis.
Davutoglu made a call to the participants of the Paris meeting to hold their next meeting in New York, at the UN General Assembly.
Pointing out to the importance of providing the necessary support to the Syrian opposition groups, Davutoglu made a call on the participants of the Friday meeting to place pressure on countries supporting the Syrian administration.
