Germany rejects Trump’s call for ground troops in Syria

Published: Updated:

Germany on Monday rejected demands by the United States to deploy troops in Syria, a day after the US called for Germany to send ground troops to northern Syria, pushing Berlin to ramp up its military involvement in the fight against ISIS.

“When I say the government envisages sticking to the current measures in the anti-Islamic State (military) coalition, this includes no ground troops, as is well known,” government spokesman Steffen Seibert told a regular news conference.
