On the sidelines of a meeting of the world's top security officials, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Friday that the alliance wouldn't interfere in other countries' domestic affairs, but it was watching developments in Egypt closely.

"I'm concerned about the global power shift — I'm concerned about the evolving security situation just outside our doorstep in North Africa and the Mideast," he said. "My warning is against too deep and uncoordinated defense cuts in Europe."

Rasmussen said he recognized the need for a democratic solution in Egypt, and suggested it was inevitable. "In the long run no country can resist the will of the people," he said.
