NATO chief says alliance will defend Turkey over Syria

Nov. 12, 2012 1:01 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 12, 2012 1:01 P.M.)
PRAGUE (Reuters) -- NATO will defend alliance member Turkey, which struck back after mortar rounds fired from Syria landed inside its border, the alliance's Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said at a meeting in Prague on Monday.

"NATO as an organization will do what it takes to protect and defend Turkey, our ally. We have more plans in place to make sure that we can protect and defend Turkey and hopefully that way also deter so that attacks on Turkey will not take place," he said.

Rasmussen also welcomed a weekend agreement by Syrian opposition groups to put aside differences and form a new coalition.
