In a statement, Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said Hagel conveyed that the United States is committed to working with the international community to respond to the "outrageous" attacks.

Hagel said the United States military is prepared for any contingency involving Syria, pledging to continue close coordination with the British and French defense forces.

In an earlier press interview, Hagel said President Barack Obama has asked the Defense Department for options for all contingencies, and the department has complied.

"We have done that," Hagel said during the interview with the BBC, according to information provided by the Pentagon. "He has seen them, we are prepared, [and] we have moved assets in place to be able to fulfill and comply with whatever option the president wishes to take. We are ready to go."
