NATO Secretary General: Putin's War Fueled By Those Who Don't Share Our Values

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) The situational coalition of the authoritarian regimes of Russia, the DPRK, and Iran with economic support from China means a global strategic shift that threatens global security.

This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg during the press conference following the first plenary meeting of the NATO Summit in Washington, reports an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Security is global, not regional. Putin's war is fueled by those who do not share our values. Iran and North Korea provide direct military support, while China is propping up Russia's war economy. This is not just a temporary coalition of convenience, it is a major strategic shift. And we must remain clear-eyed as to the threat it poses," he stressed.

Stoltenberg recalled that in the final declaration of the Summit, the allied leaders recognized that China is a decisive enabler of Russia's war against Ukraine. In fact, Beijing supports the growing threat Moscow poses to all Euro-Atlantic security as it continues this conflict at the heart of Europe, the largest in recent history. As Stoltenberg noted, such behavior on the part of China cannot remain without it negatively impacting its interests and international reputation.

"In this dangerous world, friends and partners are more important than ever. So today we agreed to continue to strengthen our partnerships, especially in the Indo-Pacific... Tomorrow, NATO will meet with four Indo-Pacific partners and the European Union. And we will continue to deepen our cooperation in addressing shared challenges," the NATO Secretary General summed up.
