A tweet on NATO’s verified page, disclosed that Trump and Stoltenberg discussed the situation in the region and NATO’s role.
“Trump asked the Secretary General for NATO to become more involved in the Middle East.
“They agreed that NATO could contribute more to regional stability and the fight against international terrorism.
“They also agreed to stay in close contact on the issue as NATO plays a key role in the fight against international terrorism, including through training missions in Iraq and Afghanistan and as a member of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS,” the tweet said.
Both parties have agreed that NATO could contribute more to regional stability and the fight against international terrorism.
This development comes following Iranian missile attacks on US bases in Iraq by Iran on Wednesday.
In a new turn of events, the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has said that the Ukrainian airliner, which crashed shortly after takeoff in Tehran, was shot down by an Iranian missile. Iran has since called for concerted investigations.
