Germany has denied the request of the United States for ground forces use against the terrorist organization “Islamic State” (IS) in Syria. Government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday in Berlin that the government only wants to continue the previous military contributions to the anti-IS coalition – “Tornado” reconnaissance jets, a tanker and trainers in Iraq.

When asked, he added, “When I say that the federal government is considering continuing its previous support in the anti-IS coalition, it is well known that there are no ground forces.”

The US Special Representative for Syria and the anti-IS coalition, James Jeffrey, had asked the German government on Friday during a visit to Berlin for additional support for the fight against IS. “We want ground troops from Germany to partially replace our soldiers”He said after his interview with the German press agency.
