On Syria, [NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen. Philip] Breedlove held out the possibility that NATO could play a coordinating role in eliminating chemical weapons although no request had been made for it to do so. . . .
Several NATO member nations had independently offered to help eliminate the chemical weapons stocks, Breedlove said.
But most of those countries wanted to know who would provide transport, who would protect their experts and who would coordinate the operation, he said.
“Several of our nations who are offering (help) are seeking the kind of things that a larger military command-and-control structure would provide, but again at this moment there is no call for … and no planning for a larger NATO mission,” he said.
