Speaking at the National Parliamentary Library Tbilisi in Georgia, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said: “I welcome closer cooperation between the different countries in the coalition fighting ISIL [Daesh] and especially between U.S and Turkey because they are key in the fight against ISIL to NATO allies.
“And I think it is of great importance that they work closer together in the fighting against ISIL, also of course in Syria.”
He underlined that NATO would continue to fight against all terrorist organizations and any threat against its allied countries.
He also said NATO had increased its presence in Turkey to increase its capability to protect itself against different kind of attacks.
Stoltenberg added the ongoing turmoil in Syria had affected Turkey.
On Aug. 24, Operation Euphrates Shield was launched, which aims at improving security, supporting coalition forces and eliminating the terror threat along Turkey’s border using Free Syrian Army fighters backed by Turkish armor, artillery and jets.
