NATO head: Balance of power quickly changing in Indo-Pacific

(MENAFN) The head of NATO stated on Tuesday that the Indo-power Pacific's structure is quickly changing.

"The globe is at a historical inflection point in the most severe and complicated security climate since the conclusion of World War II," said Jens Stoltenberg during a joint news conference following a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio in Tokyo, Japan.

He stressed that this situation necessitates further deepening of the collaboration between Japan and the alliance, arguing that the security of the Euro-Atlantic and the Indo-Pacific are closely related.

He said that Japan and NATO both believe that changing the status quo unilaterally by pressure or force is unacceptable anywhere in the globe.

Stoltenberg highlighted that the alliance vehemently opposed any unilateral attempts to alter the status quo in the East China Sea by coercion or force and issued a warning about China's growing military skills.

“With regard to China's rapid strengthening of its military capabilities and expansion of military activities, we strongly encourage China to improve transparency and to cooperate constructively with international efforts for arms control, disarmament, and non-proliferation,” he continued.
