Speaking at the close of a two-day meeting of foreign ministers in Brussels, Belgium, on Wednesday, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg agreed that Iran's connections to groups such as Hezbollah remained an issue.

But Stoltenberg called for the two issues of nuclear compliance and state–sponsored terrorism to be considered separately.

"This kind of agreement of those issues should be addressed outside the Iran nuclear deal," he said. "That's the best way to ensure unity between allies and also between Europe and the U.S. on how to deal with Iran."

Earlier Wednesday, Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu called on the international community to help prevent Tehran's attempts to export terror and expand Iranian influence.
