NATO chief rules out role in strikes against Syria
Brussels: NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Monday ruled out the possibility of a NATO role in possible military strikes against Syria but added that the international community should respond to the alleged use of chemical weapons in that country.
"No decision has been made yet as how the international community should react. As regards NATO, I don`t envisage any further NATO role... It is for individual nations to decide how to react towards what happened in Syria," Xinhua quoted Rasmussen as saying at his monthly press conference in Brussels.
"We need a firm international response in order to avoid chemical attacks taking place in the future. It would send a very dangerous signal... if we stand idly by and don`t react," he stressed.
