No NATO country can stand alone to confront the security challenges posed by China, so the alliance will for the first time announce a unified position on Beijing, he noted.

Stoltenberg added that the alliance does not intend to start a cold war against the PRC and is ready to cooperate with China on issues of mutual interest, including arms control.

The NATO Secretary-General noted that the alliance will view China as a systemic competitor, but not an enemy.
