BRUSSELS — NATO allies are moving toward approving an anti-missile system that would protect Europe, the alliance's secretary general said Thursday, adding that he hoped Russia would join in creating such a shield.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that, based on Thursday's meeting of the foreign and defense ministers of NATO's 28 members, he was "quite optimistic" the anti-missile shield would be formally adopted at the organization's next summit in Portugal on Nov. 19-20.

Fogh Rasmussen is proposing to expand an existing battlefield missile defense system all alliance members against attack from nations such as Iran and North Korea.
