Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz said on Friday his country would not deliver arms to Kurds fighting Islamic State militants in northern Iraq, saying it would focus on humanitarian aid instead.

"We're not prepared to take part in deliveries of weapons - that's not an issue for us. As you know we're not a big weapons exporter, we're not a big military power," he said in Brussels as he arrived for an emergency meeting of European foreign ministers.

"We can help in other ways such as providing humanitarian aid and we're doing that."
