NATO is sending a naval group “without delay” to help stop people smugglers in the Aegean Sea, following a request from Germany, Greece and Turkey, alliance chief Jens Stoltenberg said on Thursday.

NATO “is now directing the standing maritime group to move into the Aegean without delay and start maritime surveillance activities”, Stoltenberg told a press conference after alliance defence ministers backed the move.
