The North Atlantic Treaty Organization needs to cooperate more closely with Japan and other like-mined countries to deal with security challenges from China, as well as Russia and terrorist groups, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Monday, in an online speech laying out his vision of NATO for 2030.

In the speech, Stoltenberg urged the 30 members of the world’s biggest military alliance to defend the rules-based global order and to champion democracy amid challenges from Russia and China.

“As we look to 2030, we need to work even more closely with like-minded countries, like Australia, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, to defend the global rules and institutions that have kept us safe for decades,” and to "set norms and standards" in space and cyber space, as well as on new technologies and global arms control, Stoltenberg said during theonline event.

"The rise of China is fundamentally shifting the global balance of power," Stoltenberg said, adding that the "NATO does not see China as the new enemy or an adversary.”
