NATO is willing to help authorities as they work to track down an Egyptair plane that went missing over the Mediterranean Sea while travelling from Paris to Cairo, the chief of the military alliance says.
"I know that there are national search and rescue efforts ongoing and that France and Egypt have agreed to cooperate and to work closely together, investigating what happened," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg tells journalists in Brussels.
"If there is any request for NATO assistance, then of course we stand ready to help," he added.
NATO has several vessels in the Mediterranean Sea, including near Greek islands as part of an effort to curb migrant smuggling.
