WW3: NATO blasts Iran's 'destabilising activity' and backs Trump's no nuclear weapon vow

Following the US strike on Friday, the NATO Secretary-General held a press conference in Brussels today to establish the organisation's stance on the matter. Mr Stoltenberg declared allies had been unified on pushing for a de-escalation of tensions in the region. 

He also added, however: "Allies today expressed concern over Iran's destabilising activity in the region and for terrorist organisations. 

"We also agreed that Iran should never have a nuclear weapon."

In tandem with the announcement, Mr Stoltenberg also revealed training operations for NATO forces in Iraq had now been suspended. 

He added: "At our meeting today, Allies expressed their strong support for the fight against ISIS and for the NATO mission in Iraq.

"In everything that we do, the safety of our personnel is paramount.

"As such, we have temporarily suspended our training on the ground." 

Following the exchanges between Trump and the Iranian government, Mr Stoltenberg declared the need for "restraint" to avoid a war.
