Asked about Germany's views on a possible operation against Islamic State in Syria the spokesman said: "of course we are discussing this subject with our allies including Washington... but the chancellor said a few days ago that Germany would not consider taking part in any military action in Syria."

"However, we will continue efforts to strengthen the democratic opposition in Syria," he added.
