The NATO Summit takes place this week and all eyes are on Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin. Russia’s aggression in Ukraine casts a long shadow, but NATO has also begun to focus on the threat posed by China. MLI Foreign Policy Program Director and Munk Senior Fellow Shuvaloy Majumdar joined CBC Power and Politics to discuss the NATO summit and the challenges facing the alliance.
According to Majumdar, China is “attempting to wedge our Western alliances apart, using commercial incentives for some states and intimidation tactics on others. In so many ways, China has not been acting as a trusted partner to the West or to our shared ambitions. They are looking to replace the system we have worked so hard to build together and that challenge cannot be ignore nor neglected.”
