Moscow: German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Saturday she opposes the idea of Western weapons deliveries to Ukraine, saying that more arms won`t resolve the conflict.

"I think that the progress Ukraine needs won`t be achieved with even more weapons. I am very, very doubtful," she said, adding that "there are a lot of weapons in the region" already.

"I am of the firm conviction that there is no military solution to the conflict," she told the Munich Security Conference.
