NATO calls for China to pay the price for its support for Russia

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called on Monday for China to bear the consequences if it continues to support Russia, accusing Beijing of exacerbating the war in Ukraine, while at the same time seeking to improve its relations with the West.

“China cannot have both, and the West must at some point make China pay a price,” Stoltenberg emphasized at the Wilson Center in Washington. “Unless China changes course, there must be consequences.”

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that the continued sending of Western weapons is vital to achieving peace in Ukraine, after Kiev refused to yield to Russia’s demands.

Stoltenberg explained: “It may seem contradictory, but the path to peace is to send more weapons to Ukraine.”

In another context, Russian President Vladimir Putin will travel to North Korea on Tuesday and Wednesday in a rare visit to one of the most isolated countries in the world, which Westerners accuse of providing Moscow with ammunition to continue its attack on Ukraine.

The two countries, which are subject to broad international sanctions, have strengthened their relations since the start of the war in Ukraine in February 2022.

The Kremlin announced in a statement that, “At the invitation of Kim Jong Un, Vladimir Putin will pay a friendly state visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on June 18 and 19, 2024.” This is news confirmed by Pyongyang via the official North Korean News Agency.
