The 31st Summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) meeting in Brussels, Belgium, represents the re-affirmation of the unity of the Alliance as evident by President Joe Biden, having succeeded an unassuring Donald Trump, firmly re-committing the United States (US) to transatlantic security and collective defense.
And the need for Alliance surety was later made known via a communique issued by the 30 NATO allies that acknowledged a "threat" from Russia and "challenges" from China as real threats to the group. As reported by CNN, NATO confirmed: "We face multifaceted threats, systemic competition from assertive and authoritarian powers, as well as growing security challenges to our countries and our citizens from all strategic directions."
The NATO communique added: "Russia's aggressive actions constitute a threat to Euro-Atlantic security..."China's growing influence and international policies can present challenges that we need to address together as an Alliance." NATO concluded: "We will engage China with a view to defending the security interests of the Alliance."
After four-years of insecurity and unsurety within NATO during the one-term presidency of Donald Trump, new US President Joe Biden and the 30 NATO allies have now strongly re-affirmed the unity of the Western Alliance.
