US Defense Secretary James Mattis told Al Arabiya that Iran is behind all the regional crises.

In response to a question by Al Arabiya, Mattis said: "Syria should belong to Syrians and Iraq to the Iraqis."

Speaking from Brussels on the sidelines of a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Mattis added that Iran is involved in the crises in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Bahrain and Iraq.

NATO defense ministers are expected to agree in Brussels, on Thursday, on how to begin the planning phase of training to help Iraqi forces gain more capability.
