Last month, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg claimed it was the time to refresh the Strategic Concept of the Alliance, focusing on the improvement of ties between Europe and North America, and the deterrence of Russia and China. "We need to enhance our political and practical cooperation with like-minded democracies around the world. So we can protect the rules-based order, which is undermined by countries that do not share our values, like Russia and China," he stated.
