"We welcome always when NATO allies are working together to develop different capabilities, and I think that this kind of cooperation is the best way also to make sure that we have the capabilities different nations need and is also a good way to make sure that when we have new capabilities they can be fully integrated into NATO air defence systems," Stoltenberg said.

According to him, for NATO, it's extremely important to have interoperability, and "of course having three NATO allies working together that is an example of how we really develop interoperability, how nations can work together."
