NATO is considering joining the US-led coalition fighting ISIS militants in Syria and Iraq, U.S. Defence Secretary Ashton Carter said Thursday.

“Thanks to the leadership of NATO (head) Jens Stoltenberg we are exploring the possibility of NATO joining the coalition as a member itself,” Carter said after a meeting of the coalition in Brussels.

The coalition already includes all 28 NATO member states individually, but not the alliance in its own right.
