Polish President Andrzej Duda and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in their Thursday talk in Davos, Switzerland, exchanged views on the security situation around the world, particularly in the Middle East, Duda's aide Krzysztof Szczerski told PAP.

NATO is currently running a training and advisory mission in Iraq that includes a Polish contingent.

"The NATO secretary general presented variants for further NATO training and support presence in Iraq that will be discussed among the allies. The safety of the mission as well as the stability of Iraq and the political will of its government remain a priority," Szczerski said.

Duda and Stoltenberg also focused on NATO's new tasks in the current global and allied security situation with respect to military, technological and terrorism-related aspects, the presidential aide told PAP.

Both officials are in Davos to attend the 50th World Economic Forum.
