Berlin - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday hit back at suggestions Moscow was supplying arms for use in strife-torn Syria, saying his country did not deliver weapons to be deployed in civil conflicts.

"As far as arms supplies are concerned, Russia does not supply the weapons that could be used in a civil conflict," Putin told reporters after meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.
