Allies have 'much work' to share burden with US: NATO chief

Allies have 'much work' to share burden with US: NATO chief

Stoltenberg said the alliance will decide in June where to locate the new commands and how many staff they will have.

Mattis said: 'There is a clear understanding to include in written European Union documents that the common defence is a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission and a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission alone'.

According to the Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO is modernizing the command structure to 29 member States could act as one unit - quickly and effectively.

A Wednesday meeting of NATO defence ministers talked about two command centres, one for planning and strategy for the North Atlantic, the other for logistics in Europe, which the United States and Germany have offered to host.

NATO defence ministers wrapped up two-day talks in Brussels on Thursday, focusing on updates to the NATO command structure, increases in fair burden sharing, and NATO-EU cooperation.

A new Cyber Operations Centre will also be set up to further strengthen NATO's defenses, Stoltenberg added.

As well as agreeing to review command structures, the 2016 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Warsaw agreed to modernise its military and to bolster the alliance's eastern flank in response to Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea.

The EU's so-called permanent structured cooperation on defence agreement, known as PESCO, has projects in view already to develop new military equipment and improve cooperation and decision-making.

A new European Union defence pact and Turkey's offensive against US-backed Kurdish fighters in Syria have put strains on a transatlantic alliance facing a more assertive Russian Federation and threats from the Middle East.

While Turkey views the YPG as a "terrorist" group, the USA has been working closely with the militia against the Islamic State group in Syria and giving it weapons, infuriating Ankara.

"This is a key part of our collective security", - said Stoltenberg.

"Turkey has some legitimate security concerns".
