The heads of state and government of the NATO countries defined this Wednesday (20), at the summit they are holding in Madrid, that China’s “declared ambitions and coercive policies” “challenge the interests of , security and values” of the military alliance.

The positioning is part of the new guidelines for the next decade, which were decided at the event held in the Spanish capital and which will be concluded on Thursday.

“China employs a wide range of resources political, economic and military forces to reaffirm its global brand and increase and project its power while remaining opaque about its military strategy, intentions and development,” the document stresses. “China’s malicious hybrid and cyber operations, confrontational rhetoric and disinformation are designed to undermine the security alliance,” he added.

Also according to the new document, China “seeks to control key industrial and technological sectors, critical infrastructure, strategic materials and supply chains” and “uses its economic position to create strategic dependencies and exert influence. In doing so, it seeks to subvert the rules of the international order”.

Finally, the text emphasizes: “the ambitions and coercive policies of the Republic People of China challenge our interests, security and values.”
