(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump said he’d be asking the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO, to get more involved with the Middle East after Iran fired missiles at Iraqi bases hosting U.S. troops on Jan. 7.
“Today, I am going to ask NATO to become much more involved in the Middle East process,” Trump said during an address to the nation at the White House on Wednesday.
NATO said in a statement about the call: “The President 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.”
NATO consists of 29 countries, many of which are situated in Europe. [ Source: Epoch Times (Read More...) ]
