    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) hub in Naples, Italy is seeking expanded information sharing with the government of Algeria and organizations active in the Middle East and North Africa, US Naval Forces Africa Commander Adm. Michelle Howard said in a press release on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Howard also leads the Allied Joint Force Command Naples, which is responsible for military operations of NATO member nations in the region, as well as maintaining freedom of navigation and responding to regional crises, according to the NATO website.

    "I very much appreciate the opportunity to meet with Algerian leadership," Howard stated in the release, which followed a two-day visit to the North African nation.

    "Our intent is to create an inclusive information sharing exchange and contribute to the coordination of organizations focused on the Middle East and North Africa."
