PARIS - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday world powers were united that violence in Libya must end, but confirmed her country would take no part in military action.

She made the comment after world leaders discussed how to coordinate a military intervention in Libya in Paris.

Berlin abstained on Thursday in a UN Security Council resolution authorising a no-fly zone over Libya and ruled out any military involvement.

However, Merkel noted that her government has offered German AWACS aerial reconnaissance troops could take over duties in Afghanistan, freeing up U.S. forces to do the same job over Libya.
