BRUSSELS - NATO has agreed to continue planning for all military options on Libya, the US defense secretary said on Thursday.

Defence Secretary Robert Gates said that NATO had agreed to reposition ships closer to Libya, but was not increasing the number of ships in the Mediterranean.

"It's my impression that we're really not talking so much about increasing the number of ships, as it is about repositioning ships that are already in the region (closer to Libya)," he told reporters after a NATO meeting.
