Hungary, a member of NATO, has recently expressed concern about the direction the Alliance is taking. Its foreign minister called on the latter not to become an anti-Chinese organization. This message comes in a context of growing tensions between the United States and China, in particular due to the trade war which began under the presidency of Donald Trump and the disputes around Ukraine, Russia, but also Taiwan.
In an interview after a meeting of Alliance foreign ministers in Brussels, he said that “relations with China should not be viewed from a military point of view and that the less will have military content, the better. And, of course, we don’t want NATO to be some kind of anti-China organization. We don’t see China as a rival and we don’t want to compete with them. We believe in the importance of mutually beneficial cooperation between China and Europe. »
The trade war between the United States and China, initiated under the Trump administration, has had global repercussions and contributed to the escalation of tensions between these two nations. As a member of NATO, Hungary wishes to avoid being drawn into a potential conflict that could arise from this situation and wants to maintain its good relations with China.
