NATO is joining the US-led international coalition fighting the Islamic State terrorist organization. This was announced by Jens Stoltenberg, Secretary General of the organization at the press conference in Brussels, reports the NATO site.

“This will serve as a strong political signal of the NATO's commitment to fight terrorism and improve coordination within the coalition,” he said.

“It doesn’t mean that NATO will participate in military operations,” Stoltenberg added.

He said that civil planes AWACS, equipped with radio detection and guidance systems, will help “improve airspace management of the coalitions.” The exchange of reconnaissance data will also be strengthened.
