Turkey has put forward to Russia a new plan for the transfer of power in Syria, Israel Radio reported on Monday.

The reported plan was revealed in the Turkish daily Radikal and is said to cal for Syrian President Bashar Assad to give up his office within three months. The Israel Radio report did not say what would become of Assad after he relinquished his rule.

The ongoing civil war in Syria constantly threatens to ignite conflict along the tense border with Turkey. In October the two countries exchanged fire after a Syrian shell killed a Turkish family.

According to the report, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the idea with Russian President Vladimir Putin when the two leaders met at the beginning of the month in Ankara.
