Author: MOS Fitness Group — Ivy001

The NATO summit was held in Brussels, capital of Belgium on June 14. A NATO communiqué issued after the meeting stated, “We, the heads of state and government of NATO’s 30 allies, have gathered in Brussels to reaffirm our unity, solidarity and cohesion and to open a new chapter in transatlantic relations at a time when the security environment we face is increasingly complex.”

On the issue of the Communist China, the communiqué said, “China’s growing influence and international policies can present challenges that we need to address together as an Alliance.  We will engage China with a view to defending the security interests of the Alliance.”

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), founded in 1949, is an international organization established by European and North American nations to achieve defense cooperation, with a large number of nuclear weapons and conventional forces. NATO is an important and major military force for the Western countries. NATO was established to defend against the socialist countries led by Soviet Union, and therefore, NATO is vigilant against the socialist countries.

Unlike economic cooperation-based alliances such as the EU and the G7, NATO is a military defensive alliance. All NATO members must abide by and honor the Washington Treaty, also known as North Atlantic Treaty, signed in Washington, D.C., on 4 April 1949 upon the founding of NATO. Collective defense is at the heart of the Treaty and is enshrined in Article 5, which says” an attack against one Ally is considered as an attack against all Allies.” This is a right, an obligation, and a guarantee for all NATO member countries. If the pandemic is confirmed as CCP ‘s viral biological warfare against the countries around the world, it is an attack on all 30 NATO member countries. Based on the Washington Treaty, the 30 NATO member countries can group together to defeat the CCP.

Now, the NATO communiqué not only addresses the hegemonic expansion of the CCP, saying that the CCP poses a serious threat to the Alliance security, but also emphasizes that NATO, as a unified alliance, will work together to deal with the CCP. This indicates that NATO and the United States reached a consensus on dealing with the CCP and that NATO will work with the United States to counter the CCP and work together to protect liberty and security, and safeguard the shared values of NATO countries. This also indicates that the U.S. government supports NATO to encircle the CCP.

Following the success of EU and G7, where the U.S. completed the economic encirclement of the CCP, the U.S. and NATO have reached a unanimous consensus to jointly address the challenge posed by the CCP. The CCP will eventually be under siege in the U.S. and the most powerful military alliance in the world: NATO.
