Unpredictability is the main challenge of NATO in the modern world, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview with Voice of America.
According to him, r it was clear what the challenge was during the Cold Wa and now there are more different threats and challenges.
Stoltenberg believes that NATO needs to adapt again - partly due to the fact that Russia is becoming more assertive, illegally annexed Crimea.
According to him, this is also due to the fact that we see new threats, new problems - this is cyber weapons, hybrid weapons, and the rise of China.
As he noted, we need to understand all the consequences of changing the global balance of power for our security. There are new opportunities, but there are obvious problems. China has the second largest defense budget in the world. They are modernizing their armed forces. New advanced hypersonic intercontinental missiles have recently been demonstrated, Stoltenberg added.
