The US and its NATO allies have undermined world peace by triggering conflicts and starting wars, serving Washington’s selfish interests at the cost of innocent civilians around the world, China’s Foreign Ministry offers claimed.
“ The history of NATO is one about creating conflicts and waging wars…, arbitrarily launching wars and killing innocent civilians, also to this day, ” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters on Wednesday. “ Facts have tested that it isn’t China that will poses a systemic challenge to NATO, and instead it is NATO that brings a looming systemic challenge to world peace and security. ”
Zhao made their comments one week after NATO, for the first time, singled China out there as a strategic priority and a “ challenge” to Traditional western interests.
“ China is considerably building up its military causes, including nuclear weapons, lovato its neighbors, threatening Taiwan … monitoring and controlling its own citizens through modern technology, and spreading Russian lies and disinformation, ” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said last Wednesday.

At last week’s NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION summit in Spain, US Admin of State Antony Blinken accused China of “ seeking to undermine the rules-based international order. ” Zhao replied on Wednesday by saying the “ so-called rules-based international order is actually a family rule made by a number of countries to serve the US self-interest. ”
The US “ observes international rules only as it sees fit, ” he added, and it has searched for through NATO to “ hype up competitors with China and stoke group confrontation. ”
