‘China is investing massively in new weapons’

China’s grow­ing mil­i­tary pow­er holds poten­tial dan­gers for the transat­lantic alliance, accord­ing to NATO’s civil­ian chief.

“Chi­na is invest­ing mas­sive­ly in new weapons,” NATO Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al Jens Stoltenberg said Mon­day. “It is com­ing clos­er to us, from the Arc­tic to Africa, and by invest­ing in our infrastructure.”

That unease spurred the for­eign min­is­ters of the alliance to ded­i­cate a ses­sion of their annu­al meet­ing, held vir­tu­al­ly this year due to the coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic, to the ris­ing com­mu­nist pow­er. The dia­logue took place as Stoltenberg is orches­trat­ing a NATO Reflec­tion Group to iden­ti­fy the transat­lantic alliance’s pri­or­i­ties over the next decade — an effort that Stoltenberg hopes will cul­mi­nate in a vis­it from Pres­i­dent-elect Joe Biden in the spring.
