NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg believes that Russia's military activities and its cooperation with China are the main threats to the alliance. Stoltenberg stated this on June 8, Euractiv reports.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified existing trends and tensions when it comes to our security, but other security threats like Russian military activities, emboldened terrorist groups, and the rise of China fundamentally shift the global balance of power,” he stated.
Stoltenberg was asked if NATO would consider China as the new enemy.
“The alliance does not see China as the new enemy but must be ready to face up to the country’s growing might,” NATO Secretary-General added.
As we reported earlier, on May 27, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky approved Ukraine-NATO yearly national program that is designed for this year.
"The yearly national program defines the strategic goal of reforms, aims and priority tasks in the frameworks of implementation of politics of Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine, as well as state authorities, responsible for fulfilling these tasks," the message reads.
