NATO declares China a threat to Summit: Russia-focused military Alliance concerned about China

 Nato summit: leaders declare China presents security risk concerned


Communique is first time alliance has asserted it needs to respond to Beijing’s growing power.

Nato leaders have announced that China poses a security risk at its annual summit in Brussels, the first time a Russian-based military coalition has insisted it needs to respond to growing power of Beijing.

The final agreement, signed by the leaders of the 30-member coalition on the new US government, said China's "established and ethical aspirations posed a systemic challenge to international law-based policies".

After the summit, Joe Biden said the US had a "sacred commitment" to protect its Nato allies in an effort to allay the fears remaining behind Donald Trump's hostility. Biden said his fellow leaders at the summit knew that many Americans were committed to democracy and that the United States was a "respectable and honorable nation".

On the question of Ukraine's Nato membership, Biden said Russia's invasion of Crimea would not only be an obstacle, but also that Ukraine still had work to do with corruption before it could join the membership program.

“It depends on whether they meet the conditions. The reality is that they still have to eradicate corruption, ”Biden said.

Nato leaders have expressed concern over China's "coercive policies" - apparently aimed at the oppression of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang - the expansion of nuclear weapons and their "apparent absence and misuse of information".

The language, which is stronger than the Chinese words contained in the G7 statement agreed on Sunday, follows pressure from the Biden administration, seeking to create a strong anti-democratic power in response to Beijing's growing economic and military power.

However, Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg emphasized that China was "not a rival", adding that instead the strategy was to address the "challenges" brought by Beijing, "the world's largest economy" and "already the second largest defense budget, the navy." the greatest ”.
At the start of the summit, Biden said there was growing growth for Nato to face new challenges. "We have Russia, which operates in a way that is not in line with what we had hoped for, and we have China."

Nato, founded in 1949 at the beginning of the Cold War, was created to respond to the Soviet Union and more recently to Russia, while Beijing rarely bothered its members.

China had never been mentioned before in the NATO summit, with the brief reference to 2019 of the "opportunities and challenges" the country wanted members of the western coalition - the time when Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump, was president.

On Sunday night, Jake Sullivan, the US national security adviser, promised that Nato would increase its focus on Beijing, saying China "would appear in this message in a stronger way than we have ever seen".

Some countries have highlighted the importance of balancing the balance. Boris Johnson, the UK's prime minister, said when he arrived at the summit: "I think when it comes to China, I don't think anyone around the table today wants to get into a new cold war."

G7 leaders have criticized Beijing for human rights in its Xinjiang region, called for Hong Kong to maintain a high level of independence and called for a full investigation into the origins of the coronavirus in China.

The Chinese ambassador to London said the allegations in Xinjiang, Hong Kong and Taiwan distorted the facts and exposed the "evil intentions of a few countries like the United States". It added: "China's dignity should not be slandered."

Stentenberg also said the union's relations with Russia had "been at an all-time low since the end of the Cold War". He blamed Russia's "violent actions" for the breakdown of relations at the start of a one-day conference hosted by Biden for the first time since taking office. 

Alliance members were hoping for a strong statement in support of Nato from Biden after several years during Donald Trump's inauguration, threatening to oust Nato in 2018 and attacking the home in early 2019.

"Nato is very important to the interests of the US itself," Biden said during a meeting with Stoltenberg. The president described Nato's article 5, in which a single member's attack on a member of the public was viewed as a "universal obligation".

He added: "I want Nato to know that America exists."

Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online. Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online. "Until Russia demonstrates compliance with international law and its international obligations and obligations, it will not return to 'business as usual'," the statement said. "We will continue to respond to deteriorating security conditions by improving our prevention and defense system."

Alliance members have approved a new cyber security strategy in response, and will first help each other in the event of a "critical cyber attack", confirming Nato's commitment to joint defense defense in the traditional military, included in article 5.
