German Chancellor Angela Merkel opposed the holding of new parliamentary elections, the Associated Press reported.

"People voted, and I absolutely do not support the people's request to vote again if we can not do anything with the results," Merkel said at the party meeting in Kuehlungsborn.

Let's remind, last week in Germany negotiations on formation of ruling coalition after they were left by the Free democratic party have failed. Participants failed to reach agreements on a number of key issues, including on migration and environmental issues.

Merkel said she would inform the German president about the state of affairs.

As the Associated Press notes, if Merkel can not gather a coalition, then the only options may be a minority government or new elections.

Earlier President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with Federal Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel in the framework of the working visit to Brussels, according to the press service of Ukraine’s President. 

The parties discussed the dangerous developments in the Donbas provoked by the ceasefire regime violation by Russian militants, including cases of shelling of civilian objects, as well as the situation in Luhansk.

Further steps were coordinated to advance the initiative to deploy a UN peacekeeping mission throughout the occupied Donbas area, including the uncontrolled section of the Ukrainian-Russian state border.
