China-Russia became angry at NATO’s move

At the NATO summit in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius, many countries belonging to the Western military alliance pledged more military and financial support to Ukraine. In an immediate reaction to NATO’s move, Russia’s influential Security Council deputy chairman Dmitry Medvedev said NATO’s increased military aid to Ukraine was a step closer to World War III. Meanwhile, China has said that NATO’s expansion in Asia will be given a strong response.

Medvedev, a close associate of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said, ‘NATO’s support will not be an obstacle to achieving Russia’s goals in Ukraine. The whole crazed West couldn’t bring up anything else. In fact, it is a dead end. World War III is approaching.’

Meanwhile, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand have joined the summit of the alliance for the second time in a row despite not being members of NATO. The four countries are also going to sign cooperation agreements with NATO separately, signaling the expansion of the Western alliance in Asia. China has criticized the presence of four countries at the NATO summit. At the same time, Beijing reacted angrily to NATO’s announcement of China as a major challenge to the interests and security of the Western military alliance.

In a statement after the first day of the summit on Tuesday, NATO leaders said China poses a threat to the alliance’s interests, security and values ​​through its ambitions and assertiveness policies. They called on China to criticize Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. The Chinese mission to the European Union strongly criticized NATO’s position in a statement on Tuesday, saying we strongly reject it. NATO is deliberately distorting China’s position and trying to discredit the country. Beijing opposes NATO’s moves in the Asia-Pacific region. China’s tabloid Global Times said in an editorial, NATO should immediately withdraw its black hand extended towards the Asia-Pacific region.

Meanwhile, allies of the alliance are not willing to set a specific time on when Ukraine will be able to join NATO. NATO says a country can join NATO only if conditions are met and allies agree, which is time-consuming. In a statement, the alliance said the leaders of the alliance recognize the need for Ukraine to join NATO as soon as possible. However, no deadline has been fixed in this regard yet.

President Volodymyr Zelensky cannot easily accept Ukraine’s delay in joining NATO. Criticizing it as unreasonable, he expressed his disappointment on Tuesday. US President Joe Biden is currently opposing Ukraine’s accession to NATO. However, in a statement yesterday on Wednesday, G7 will help build Ukraine’s defense capabilities in water, land and space. He said, Ukraine’s future lies in NATO.

Zelensky held a series of meetings with NATO leaders after arriving in Vilnius on Tuesday by special invitation. At a joint press conference with Zelensky, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that Ukraine is closer to NATO than ever. But the biggest risk would be if Russia wins the war.

The G7, the world’s seven largest economies, and NATO are set to announce their commitment to a long-term security package for Ukraine. Welcoming it, Zelensky said that the outcome of the NATO summit was good. On the sidelines of the NATO conference, officials said that Ukrainian pilots will begin training next month in Romania, a member of the alliance, to fly US-made F-16 fighter jets.

Meanwhile, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said there is no indication of a change in the West’s position on the Ukraine issue. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the war in Ukraine will not stop until Western powers stop trying to defeat Moscow. News from The Guardian, CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera.
