NATO leaders met in Brussels Wednesday, hoping to drum up support for its Libyan air strike campaign; the extra help was hard to come by.
NATO leaders say broader backing would help sustain the operations.
British Defense Secretary Liam Fox called on more countries to pitch in.
''What we have been trying to say today is that there are other
countries who have assets which we could be using, not necessarily
ground attacks but support and reconnaissance, in air-to-air refueling
and so on... And they should be thinking again about that,'' he said.
The push for more involvement in Libya comes as foreign diplomats consider involvement in another war torn Arab country: Syria
UN ambassadors met Wednesday in New York to discuss a draft resolution
sponsored by Britain, France, Germany and Portugal that condemns human
rights violations and urges countries not to supply weapons to Damascus.
A vote on the resolution could come later this week.
