NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg warns of ‘new dangers’ from Russia-China ties | Source: Economic Times

Growing political and military cooperation between Russia and China poses “new dangers” for NATO, the head of the military alliance said. “Moscow and Beijing are increasingly coordinating their respective positions in decisions taken in multilateral organisations like the UN, and  both countries conduct joint military exercises. “China is very active in Africa, in the Western Balkans and the Arctic.

The United States has decided to boost the presence of its armed forces in Greece. This enhanced footprint is presented as a natural deployment in a NATO ally’s territory, but behind that explanation lies Washington’s worry of a deterioration in Greek-Turkish relations at a time when Turkish President Erdogan can no longer be viewed as a steadfast ally of the West.
