STRELNA, St Petersburg, September 5 (Itar-Tass) - Germany does not intend to take part in possible military actions against Syria, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on the sidelines of the G20 summit on Thursday.
“Germany will only take part in providing humanitarian assistance to the conflict in Syria,” Merkel said.
“This war should be put an end,” the German chancellor said, adding that the conflict could be settled by only political means.
In addition, Merkel warned against high expectations that the G20 summit will find a solution to the Syrian crisis. “This possibility can be discussed and the summit gives us the chance. Who talks tries to reach mutual understanding,” Merkel said.
It is difficult to reach consensus on Syria in light of the disagreements in the UN Security Council. “I think that we fail to work out a common position,” she added.
