Beijing castigates NATO for its criticism of its partnership with Moscow in the Arctic.

Posted on 1.9.2022


Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian responded to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg’s remarks on the Russian-Chinese partnership in the Arctic.

Zhao Lijian said on Wednesday that NATO’s “irresponsible” criticism of the Russian-Chinese partnership in the Arctic proves that this Alliance persists in its Cold War mentality.

The Chinese spokesperson noted, “NATO has irresponsibly stated that cooperation between Russia and China undermines the value system and interests of the alliance. An attitude that reveals NATO’s efforts to persist in exporting the mentality of the Cold War and recreating a confrontation between blocs”.

“NATO should immediately abandon the dangerous thought” that is confusing the world, Zhao added, noting that China “respects the sovereignty of Arctic countries, as well as their sovereign rights and jurisdiction in the region, and adheres to the principles of international law”. . »

Last Thursday, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that cooperation between Russia and China in the Arctic “constitutes a challenge to NATO values ​​and interests”.

Stoltenberg wrote an article in the Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail, that “Russia has dramatically increased its military activity in the Arctic in recent years.”

The NATO Secretary General considered that “Russian-Chinese cooperation in the region does not meet the interests of the alliance”, and urged the Alliance to “strengthen its presence there”.

Note that the United States announced earlier the creation of the post of ambassador to the Arctic region.

“Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will soon appoint a Goodwill Ambassador to engage with Arctic nations, Indigenous groups, and other stakeholders,” State Department spokesman Vidant Battle said. .
