When South Korea revealed that China was opposed to attending the NATO summit, the United States denounced China as having no veto power.

When asked at a press briefing on the 23rd local time that China opposes South Korea’s participation, White House National Security Council Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby responded, “China has no veto over which meeting South Korea will participate in.”

“This meeting is not about the Asian version of NATO, NATO is a security alliance between Atlantic countries,” Kirby said.

“The same kind of attack on territory and sovereignty can happen in the Indo-Pacific, as we see in Europe,” Kirby said. I did.

“The Asia-Pacific region is not a geographical category of the North Atlantic,” Wang Wenbin, spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said at a regular briefing yesterday. I have stated.

NATO, led by the United States, will hold a summit in Madrid, Spain, on the 29th and 30th, and the leaders of Indo-Pacific countries such as Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, which are not NATO members, will also attend.
