BRUSSELS - Turkey has asked NATO to deploy Patriot missiles on its territory, the alliance said on Wednesday, to help it defend itself against any Syrian attacks.

"Such a deployment would augment Turkey's air defense capabilities to defend the population and territory of Turkey," NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in a statement. "It would contribute to the de-escalation of the crisis along NATO's south-eastern border."

Rasmussen said the alliance would discuss the request "without delay".
