MANILA - The United States will continue to seek out an international coalition to act together on Syria, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Friday, after Britain's parliament rejected military action.

"It is the goal of President (Barack) Obama and our government ... whatever decision is taken, that it be an international collaboration and effort," Hagel said during a trip to the Philippines, adding that the United States would continue to consult with Britain.

"Our approach is to continue to find an international coalition that will act together. And I think you're seeing a number of countries state, publicly state, their position on the use of chemical weapons."
