"The foreign ministry must consider effective measures to save more than 12,500 Indonesians staying in that country, by immediately evacuating them," chairman of the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR)`s Commission I Mahfudz Siddiq said on Monday.
He suggested that they can be moved to Syria`s neighboring countries temporarily.
"We need to pressure President Bashar Al Assad to stop violence against civilians," he also said.
"Indonesia must be able to proactively find a peaceful solution to end the turbulence in Syria and encourage a democratic transition," he said.
Foreign Affairs Minister Marty M Natalegawa earlier reiterated his call for an end to the escalating violence against civilians in Syria.
Indonesia also called for a political process in Syria following the failure of the United Nations to issue a resolution on the country, the foreign ministry said recently.
Marty said this during a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in New York on Friday, February 10.
"Indonesia has so far emphasized the need to end the violence and to conduct a political process to respect the Syrian people`s aspirations," the minister said, reflecting President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono`s recent statement on Syria.
The Indonesian and Turkish foreign affairs ministers stressed the significance of the roles to be played by both nations, as democratic and Muslim-majority states, in responding to the developments in Syria.
They also explored the possibility of organising an international meeting on the Syrian crisis.
