NATO countries have not agreed on the situation in northeast Syria

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance’s countries have maintained different approaches to the situation in northern Syria and to Germany’s initiative to resolve it.

“There are different views among us, the states presented their opinions during the meeting. The discussion was direct and open, I think it was useful. Opinions are different, but we agreed on several points, in particular, that Turkey has well-grounded security concerns and the need not to undermine successes in the fight against the common enemy of IS (the Islamic State terrorist organization),” said Stoltenberg.

Stoltenberg said earlier that NATO sees progress in stabilizing the situation in northern Syria.

Recall, the Finnish media criticized Stoltenberg for his position on the military operation of Turkey in Syria.
