SYDNEY - Australia on Thursday said that it had denied a request from the United States for a greater military commitment against Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq made in the wake of the November attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

Australia, a staunch ally of the United States and its battle against Islamist militants in Iraq and Syria, has been one of the largest contributors to the US-led bombing campaign against the group.

But Australian Defense Minister Marise Payne said that there were no plans to increase that commitment beyond current levels at the moment beyond the possibility of additional humanitarian aid, despite the request from Washington.
