The NATO Deputy Secretary General called on the alliance to be careful around Israel.

NATO countries must be very careful in the situation with Israel in order to prevent an escalation of the conflict,  Deputy Secretary General of the alliance Mircea Geoana said.

“We hope that the situation will not escalate. Israel has every right to defend its territory and population. But we must act proportionately and carefully so as not to cause a direct or indirect escalation,” Joana said at a briefing in Romania, commenting on events in Israel.

According to him, the alliance maintains a stable diplomatic and political dialogue with all countries in the region. In particular, the King of Jordan is scheduled to visit NATO headquarters next week.

“We hope that everything will calm down and return to the path of dialogue and diplomatic solutions – this is the only way to achieve stability,” Joana added.
