"The reciprocal briefings on exercises are important because they are helping to provide more transparency and more predictability, and in times with more military activity close to our borders it is extremely important to avoid incidents and accidents, and if they happen - to make sure they don't spiral out of control", said Stoltenberg.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said this at the Meeting of NATO Ministers of Foreign Affairs in Brussels on Wednesday, a Brussels-based Ukrinform correspondent reports.

NATO's chief says he's looking forward to talks with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and that the military alliance is too focused on security issues to be distracted by rumors about Tillerson's future. Secretary General Stoltenberg stressed that successive rounds of enlargement have secured peace in Europe and supported European integration.

New agreements were reached with the European Union regarding increased military mobility, strengthened information exchange in counter-terrorism operations and coordinated support for partner countries, and more promotion of women's role in peace and security.

The foreign ministers also will address global security challenges to include North Korea.

Stoltenberg also called on the worldwide community to put pressure on Pyongyang, including sanctions, after a recent ballistic missile test which North Korea said was its strongest ever.

Georgian Vice Prime Minister, Foreign Minister participates in the meeting of the NATO Foreign Ministers. "The coalition has made significant progress". But this does not mean an end to the threat.

The move follows Nato's announcement in February that it was stepping up its air and maritime presence in the Black Sea, as part of deterrence measures following the Kremlin's annexation of Crimea in 2014. "We will conclude with a meeting on NATO's Open Door policy and how we can best support the countries which aspire for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation membership".
