NATO warned against any escalation in hostilities between Syria and Turkey after border artillery exchanges as alliance defence ministers reviewed a difficult withdrawal from Afghanistan.

NATO head Anders Rasmussen said the pullout of NATO Afghan combat forces by end-2014 would top the agenda at a two-day ministers' meeting which will review defence commitments and how to meet them in times of austerity.

However, asked about the Syrian conflict and the spillover shelling of Turkish border areas, he condemned the attacks by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad and warned too against escalation.
