The Chinese Foreign Ministry said that NATO has “messed up” Europe in a warning against the alliance’s aspirations of expanding into the Asia Pacific. The comments were made in response to a call from British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss for a “global NATO” that would be capable of protecting Taiwan.
“NATO, a military organization in the North Atlantic, has in recent years come to the Asia-Pacific region to throw its weight around and stir up conflicts,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said. “Nato has messed up Europe. Is it now trying to mess up the Asia-Pacific and even the world?”
In response to Truss saying China must play by the rules, Wenbin called out NATO members for lecturing other countries while it has “wantonly waged wars and dropped bombs in sovereign states, killing and displacing innocent civilians.”
In recent years, NATO has made it clear that it has its eyes set on Asia and identified China as a “challenge” facing the military alliance. The US has also rallied many of its European allies to send warships into sensitive waters near China’s coast, including the UK, France, and Germany.
Boosting alliances in Asia is part of Washington’s Indo-Pacific Strategy, which was published by the Biden administration earlier this year. The strategy calls for a greater US military and diplomatic presence in the region to counter Beijing.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi recently told his Vietnamese counterpart that he believes the US buildup could lead to a Ukraine-style “tragedy” in the region. “The United States has tried to create regional tension and provoke confrontation by pushing forward the Indo-Pacific strategy,” Wang said.

the asia pacific is a very long way from the north atlantic.
maybe somebody is getting too big for their britches.
Or maybe they know now is the time for the final battle. It’s been building for 80 years. We won’t have the capital do wage it in another 10 years, and China might not either. Look out the window for fireworks, it’s time.
I like the idea of running out of capital. Couldn’t Biden and Xi box, and then the winner declared global ruler and given a little crown, with nothing else changing?
Well, THIS is rich, coming from a f*cking Brit. What’s she think, they’re going to establish another empire upon which “the sun never sets”?
The very thought of f*cking with China is laughable, or would be if it weren’t so potentially consequential. Let’s get this straight, Amerikkka and her “allies”: the future is already here, and it is CHINA. Y’all think you can win a war with them? All I can say is, go ahead and try and see what happens.
God damn Amerikkka and her whores.
Blinken has stated that the U.S. wants to “weaken” Russia. I wonder if they could weaken Russia as MUCH as the GWOT has weakened the U.S.??? Spending trillions to fight Afghan tribesmen on the other side of the planet, while Russia & China have used the time to up their tools in the realm of Great Game type of warfare like hypersonic missiles, superior fighter jets and present day state of art air defense systems that even our NATO partners buy in spite of the animosity it generates with the U.S.. Pure and simple, the U.S. has squandered its former pre-eminent status of leader in weapons of modern war to fall “a decade” behind and worse. They “modernize” their nukes by reducing blast of their nukes to make them “more usable’ but of less deterrent value. America and its NATO Gnomes will be very sorry if then end up in a hot nuclear was with Russia & China. whom they have been harassing almost nonstop, now and in the recent past. It seems to me that they are blind to how they have forced a bond between them that will force them to fight in concert, or be picked off one by one. China will use the opportunity to END the U.S. and NATO’s delusional attempt to be the hegemon in China’s own front yard. Hubris precedes a great fall…!!!!!
