In an interview with the news agency RT In Arabic broadcast on May 26, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the comments of NATO officials on the security situation in the Asia-Pacific region seem to signal that the “front line” continues. Followers of this US-led military alliance will be drawn to the South China Sea.
State news agency TASS quoted Foreign Minister Lavrov as saying: “Recently, NATO Secretary General (Jens Stoltenberg) and belligerent politicians, such as British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, have publicly stated that this military alliance should demonstrate global responsibility, that NATO should shoulder the responsibility for security in the Pacific region. Obviously, that means next time NATO’s ‘front line’ will be moved to the South China Sea.”
The head of the Russian diplomatic service added: “European Commission (EU) President Ursula von der Leyen also said the EU should have a responsibility for security in the Indo-Pacific region. How will they do that? They talk about a kind of “EU Army”. No one will allow Europe to create this “Army”, as long as NATO exists.”
