Beijing reacted to NATO Montenegro membership invitation

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman reacted to NATO Montenegro membership invitation at Thursday's press - conference in Beijing.

In response to a question the spokesperson repeatedly made clear that Beijing considered the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) a relic of the Cold War, and the continuation of Cold War thinking.

In a time of globalization each country's security relates to others.

The international community should promote the creation of a new security arrangement, which is comprehensive, and based on cooperation among member states within a new equitable international system stressed the spokesman.

NATO formally invited Montenegro to join the organization as its 29 member on Wednesday. As a result, admission negotiations with the former Yugoslav Republic can start immediately.

Since the end of the Cold War, the US-led military bloc expanded its membership with 12 Central and Eastern-European states despite protests from Russia. In 2009, the alliance admitted Croatia and Albania as full members.
