Bulgaria: Jens Stoltenberg: If Iran Invades Israel, NATO will not intervene

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the Alliance would not help Israel in the case of an attack by Iran, the Washington-based Washington Examiner newspaper reported and were quoted by the Bulgarian FOCUS News Agency.

Stoltenberg told the German journal Der Spiegel that since Israel is not a NATO member, the "security guarantee" does not apply to it.

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.
