When asked about Syria, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he would expect an "immediate reaction" from the international community to any use of chemical weapons.
The possible use of chemical weapons would be completely unacceptable for the whole international community. If anybody resorts to these terrible weapons, then I would expect an immediate reaction from the international community.
General Richard Myers has told ITV News that the real threat in Syria is from Islamist groups using chemical weapons - not President Assad.
NATO agrees to deploys Patriot missiles along the Syria/Turkey border but denies claims that it is taking an active role in the conflict.
