U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a 2019 Wash100 Award winner, has said NATO member countries should remain committed to collaboration and avoid complacency to help preserve regional peace and stability, DoD News reported Tuesday.

He told the publication in an interview at the NATO Military Committee meeting in Brussels that the international alliance's mission is to prevent great power conflicts.

"Peace doesn't happen by accident: It happens because of effort, resources, commitment, allies banding together," the general added.

Milley said he thinks NATO should also explore other potential support its members can provide to allied troops as tensions in the Middle East intensify.
