Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) — The North Atlantic Treaty Organization won’t point specifically to Iran’s ballistic missiles as a threat when its members meet in Lisbon at the end of the week, the Financial Times reported, citing NATO General- Secretary Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

In an interview with the newspaper, Rasmussen said more than 30 countries have, or want to acquire, missiles that could reach territory of NATO members, so it would make no sense to single out Iran.

This may mean Turkey will support plans for an alliance- wide ballistic missile defense system, the FT said.

Rasmussen said he believes “the tide has turned” in the war in Afghanistan and Taliban forces are “under pressure everywhere,” the newspaper reported.
