[Epoch Times, April 8, 2022](Epoch Times reporter Xu Jian comprehensive report) On Thursday (April 7), NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that because Beijing refused to invade Russia Ukraine has condemned and NATO will for the first time decide to include China in its new national defense strategy.

Stoltenberg told the media at NATO headquarters in Brussels: “We have seen that China (China) is reluctant to condemn Russian aggression, and Beijing joins Moscow in questioning the right of countries to choose their own path.” The entire North Atlantic alliance poses a “serious challenge”.

Stoltenberg made the remarks after an expanded meeting of NATO foreign ministers. The meeting discussed how NATO is responding to new security realities, including challenges to the rules-based international order posed by Russia and China.

Stoltenberg said that the 30-member NATO will announce its new “strategic concept” after the Madrid summit in June and include China as a strategic consideration. growth, and how its mandatory policies affect our security,” he added.

Also attending the meeting were the foreign ministers of NATO’s Asia-Pacific partners Australia, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand. Stoltenberg said the presence of Asia-Pacific partners at the meeting was important “because of the global implications of this crisis”.

NATO will seek to strengthen partnerships with allies in the Asia-Pacific region in multiple areas, including cyber, new technologies and combating disinformation. Stoltenberg said that, in turn, would help NATO and its allies work more closely together on maritime security, climate change and resilience, saying “global challenges require global solutions”.

Stoltenberg also said that NATO remains primarily focused on ending the war in Ukraine, providing more aid not only to Kyiv but also to other countries threatened by Russian aggression, such as Georgia.

In early February this year, before Russia launched the war against Ukraine, Putin went to Beijing to attend the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics and issued a joint statement with Xi Jinping, saying that “there is no limit to the friendship between the two countries, and there is no restricted area for cooperation”. The CCP also adopted this joint statement, which is rare China and Russia openly oppose the eastward expansion of NATO.

After Russia invaded Ukraine seven weeks ago, it was quickly met with global condemnation. Countries including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea and NATO members have imposed tough sanctions on Moscow. But China refuses to condemn the war and condemns international sanctions against Russia.

Last month, the United States joined 140 other nations in voting at the United Nations General Assembly for a historic resolution condemning Putin’s aggression and demanding his withdrawal. China, along with 34 countries, abstained from voting.

On Thursday, the UN General Assembly voted to suspend Russia’s membership in the Human Rights Council. This time, the CCP chose to side with Russia and voted against it.

The United States has repeatedly warned Beijing of “consequences” if it aids Moscow.

“The Russian invasion has global, long-term consequences. What’s happening in Ukraine is being watched closely around the world,” Stoltenberg said.
