4:02 pm
previous assa, describe just obsolete global warming and security. and i've got a standard on the agenda. nato countries are also expected to call on china to respect its international commitments. as the summit began, secretary general sultan burg clarified the alliance, his position on basically, what we have seen over several years is significant military build up by china investing heavily in new military capabilities. including new capabilities and also more advanced weapons systems. we see coercive behavior, for instance, for instance in the south china sea. and we also know that china does not share or values we see. oh, they're cracked down on democratic protest in hong kong. and also prosecutor minorities in their own country and use mold on technology, social media, facial recognition, to monitor and surveillance, their own population away,
4:03 pm
we've never seen before. all of these matters for our security. we are not entering a new cold war on the signers will not our at the certain of our and the me about. we need to address together ask the lions the challenges that the routes are trying our processes to our security straight to nate her age q in brussels and where we join d w correspondent terry shoulds. welcome terry. so we just heard yet, instead of saying no new cold war with china. so how will nato respond to china's more assertive nature? hi, phil. well, in the end, what nato has to work with at this point is words. china doesn't directly threaten nato. it is simply all of these different activities that secretary general stalsen burge listed that has allies, very concerned china spends on its military far more than european allies. it has
4:04 pm
the 2nd largest military in the world after the united states. and it already has the largest navy. so this is not something that a military alliance can ignore, as told and berg mentioned to they are not happy with china's anti democratic behavior. and the message in the final communicate will be to china. that if you are going to be a major after on the international stage, you need to act responsibly in line with international norms. ok, said with attorney, because of course china isn't nature's only challenge and we'll hear from german chancellor angler medical on the alliance. his other big problem and who named dorothy come to you who pleaded hybrid challenges are becoming increasingly significant, such as cyber attack, especially when it comes to russia. of course, this information campaigns pop, not many nato allies, including germany, also affected by this is in due to us. we will talk about the situation in ukraine while we are also seeing big challenges and about the co operation between nato and
4:05 pm
countries like georgia and ukraine. caught you know, event. and we will, of course, speak about the threat such as we are seeing in belgrade to a human rights all being trampled on them. so terry show. so you are saying that as far as time goes tough words from nato. what about russia? what form is nature's response likely to take? well, certainly with russia, it's a different question because russia borders, nato allies, several nato allies directly threatened by moscow regularly. so it certainly has a greater geo political stake in what moscow is doing at the moment. but again, there have been many, many very strong statements against russian behavior and it hasn't seem to have any impact. the relationship is going nothing but down. so in fact, at this point, they will likely reiterate those messages. but all eyes are really on this meeting . on wednesday between president biden and putin, and i can definitely say that as president biden heads into this meeting in geneva,
4:06 pm
he is carrying the wishes of european allies on his shoulders. they all want to see very, very strong statements from president biden, drawing some lines in the sand and telling russia it may not go further. it needs to stop these malign activities. so president biden is in europe over the next few days, essentially telling europe in leaders that they, the usa is back and is committed to its international obligations. so here at night, so we hearing about concrete actions from the us. so or is he just telling them more of what they want to hear? well, in terms of security fail, words aren't meaningless. the words that president trump issued against nato were really hurtful to the alliance and didn't fact create a lot of divisiveness. so when, when president biden comes back and says over and over again, the u. s. is back, the u. s. is there, the u. s. will defend its nato allies. it does mean something. it's not just atmosphere. if it does create more of
4:07 pm
a sense of security among these allies who are bound to go to war for each other if necessary. and, and the truth is that during the trump administration, he didn't make a lot of changes on the ground even though he threatened to. so most u. s. reassurance, measures physically are still in place and everybody is, is very much welcoming. these are the words from president biden that tell them if needed, we will use our defense mechanism to protect you our allies. thank you for that territory. show that nature headquarters in brussels. every year dw brings together media professionals and decision makers from a range of fields to discuss the most important socio political issues about time. german chancellor, i'm going to michael started this g as global media form with a special message. there was also an address from armand lasha party colleague who hopes to succeed her as chancellor disruption and innovation is the theme of the 2
