NATO offers troops after Mideast peace deal
Herzliya: The secretary general of NATO is offering peacekeeping services to Israelis and Palestinians if both request it in a peace deal.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen told a security conference in Israel on Wednesday that NATO would intervene if a future peace treaty was broken or if the two sides needed assistance.
A spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he and Rasmussen discussed expanding cooperation between Israel and NATO. The spokesman would not say if Israel would accept Rasussen`s offer.
Netanyahu insists Israel must have strict security guarantees in any peace deal.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has said he would agree to have international peacekeepers deployed in a future Palestinian state for a limited time.
