A transition towards peace in Syria that involves Assad, the regime leader, is "impossible" as the country's opposition will not accept him, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said on Wednesday.
Çavuşoğlu also confirmed Turkey had prepared an agreement towards a ceasefire.
Turkish state media earlier said Turkey and Russia had agreed on a proposal toward a general ceasefire in Syria.
