NATO believes that events in Ukraine can “repeat in Asia”, since China quickly increases its armed forces and studies war lessons in Ukraine, “threatening Taiwan”. This was stated by the Secretary General of the organization Jens Stoltenberg.
“China carefully monitors the lessons, and this affects its decisions. What is happening today in Europe can happen tomorrow in Asia. China significantly strengthens its armed forces, including nuclear capabilities, without any transparency. It tries to establish control Above the South China Sea and threatens Taiwan, ”said Stoltenberg, noting that China continuously deepens relations with Russia, which causes special concern to NATO.
