Chinanews.com, Beijing, February 6th (Zhang Naiyue) Recently, officials from the United States and NATO have gathered to visit the Asia-Pacific region, talking about the "China challenge" and frequently mentioning "alliance" and "extended deterrence".
On January 31, 2023 local time, NATO Secretary-General Stoltenberg (left) shook hands with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo.
The U.S. enlisted NATO to disrupt the Asia-Pacific, revealing four major intentions: first, to maintain its hegemony in the Western Pacific region and continue to cause trouble; alliance; third, obsessed with the strategic competition system of major powers, building a line of defense and strengthening the "first island chain" under the banner of strengthening cooperation, trying to form a front to "enclose China"; fourth, trying to accelerate NATO's shift to "Asia-Pacificization" , Introducing the "New Cold War" thinking into the Asia-Pacific region.
On February 2, 2023 local time, in Manila, the Philippines, demonstrators chanted slogans to protest the visit of US Secretary of Defense Austin.
The actions of the United States and NATO are unpopular and have aroused opposition from all parties in the region: people in South Korea and the Philippines have rallied to protest against the military presence of the United States; Korean media even bluntly said that the "nuclear bait" brought by NATO is like "poison".
The Asia-Pacific is the most economically active region in the world, and it is inseparable from the joint efforts of countries in the region to build an environment of peace, cooperation, stability and prosperity.
The Asia-Pacific is not a "bridgehead" for confrontation between the United States and the West. Countries in the region must remain highly vigilant against the evil intentions of the United States and NATO to disrupt the Asia-Pacific.
