BRUSSELS - The Netherlands has not received a formal request to send Patriot missiles to NATO ally Turkey to help defend the country's border with Syria, the Dutch Defense Minister said on Monday.

"We did not receive a formal request yet," Defense Minister Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert told reporters in Brussels. "We are waiting for a formal request."

Turkey has said it has intensified talks with NATO allies on how to shore up security on its 900-km (560-mile) frontier with Syria after mortar rounds fired from Syria landed inside its territory.
