US Defense Secretary James Mattis said that Iran is behind all the regional crises, Al Arabiya reported on Thursday.

In response to a question, 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.
