brussels - The attack in Manchester shows how important it is to co-exist in the fight against terrorism. That said NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg Wednesday, one day before the summit of the 28 NATO Member States in Brussels. The Norwegian expects that all leaders will somehow say something about the 'barbaric attack' on children.
US President Donald Trump wants NATO to do more against terrorism. His wish to join the military alliance of the coalition against terrorist group IS wins support, but it is still being discussed, said Stoltenberg.
All NATO countries are already members of the coalition which count more than sixty countries. According to Stoltenberg, NATO's accession will be a powerful political message and, moreover, practical for coordination. However, a fight for NATO is not discussed. However, he expects the support of AWACS radar aircraft to be extended to the coalition. The Netherlands is also involved.
