BRUSSELS - The United States is not asking NATO to back a Syria no-fly zone and the issue is not currently on the alliance's agenda, the outgoing US ambassador to NATO said on Monday.

"We are not pushing for a no-fly zone at NATO," Ivo Daalder said in response to questions after his farewell speech in Brussels.

As of today, he said: "the issue of a no-fly zone is not on the table at NATO. Whether it will (be) tomorrow or some other day, I don't know, but it isn't there yet. It isn't, as far as I know, on the table of any NATO member, including, so far the United States."
