If I am a counter party to an NDA, can I witness the counter party’s signature?

To facilitate execution of the document is this possible. Thanks

If the NDA is being executed as a deed, a party to the deed cannot witness any of the signatures.

If the NDA is not being executed as a deed, the signature of a witness is not required.
