NATO is also not involved in conflicts in the Middle East or peaceful efforts there, Stolltenberg added.
The tension between Israel and Iran has recently escalated. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently raised his criticism of the nuclear agreement with Iran, which US President Donald Trump recently announced that he is withdrawing his country.
