brussels - Now that terrorist movement IS in Syria and Iraq has lost a lot of ground, the organization could be more attacking in the Middle East and beyond, including in Europe. NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg warned there on Thursday at a meeting of the international anti-IS coalition in Brussels.
'So we must stay vigilant and work together. That is exactly why we meet today today. Our work has not been done yet, 'said Stoltenberg. The US-led coalition consists of 73 parties, including all NATO countries and the military alliance themselves. Defense Minister Ank Bijleveld is also in consultation.
Afghanistan was also discussed on Thursday. NATO ministers decided to extend the Resolute Support training mission with 3000 men to 16,000. The Americans also carry out fighting missions against the Taliban. 'We can fight and fight in Afghanistan at the same time,' said Commander John Nicholson. 'The door is open to the Taliban, but if they do not go through, wait their destruction. '
