last, our beaching has responded to nato's accusations from on this. let's cross the katrina, you correspondent in beijing. so what's the reaction from china a trina? we've had a mission statement from china's mission to the e. u, and in it, the spokesperson denied that, trying to pose any systemic fragile systemic challenge to the nato countries. and said that any concerns about china mentioned during the summit were largely overblown. and firstly, it address concerns about china is rising military ambitions. china, it says that its defense strategy is mostly defensive and that its budget in 2021 for military spending was $209000000000.00, which was just 1.3 percent of its g d p, which wasn't even close to the 2 percent minimum required by nato countries. it also addressed concerns about its nuclear weaponry. naser. countries have raise concerns about china growing it's nuclear stockpile. china says that it's nuclear
