NATO today raised concerns of a nuclear alliance between Russia, China and North Korea that would ‘challenge the world order’.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg warned that a Russian victory in Ukraine would embolden China to potentially invade the self-governing island of Taiwan, which Beijing claims as its own.
Stoltenberg said China is ‘learning lessons’ from Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine as he warned: ‘What is happening in Europe today could happen in East Asia tomorrow.’
The NATO chief made the comments during a trip to Japan in which he and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida vowed to strengthen ties with the West amid increasing security fears over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its growing military-cooperation with China.
The leaders also raised concerns about Russia’s nuclear threats. Pictured: The launch of Russian Sarmat ballistic missile in April 2022

The world is at a historical inflection point in the most severe and complex security environment since the end of World War II,’ Stoltenberg and Kishida said in a statement.
The leaders also raised concerns about Russia’s nuclear threats, joint military drills between Russia and China near Japan, and North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons.
It comes after Russia yesterday warned it is on the ‘verge of a direct collision with the US and NATO‘ and it is ‘very possible’ there will be no nuclear arms control treaty with America after 2026 due to Washington’s efforts to inflict ‘strategic defeat’ on Moscow in Ukraine.
