Distrust and tension mark relations between the parties today, while China accuses the US of wanting to expand a military alliance to Asia

“If they touch NATO countries, we will respond,” US President Joe Biden said in early March.

This is the philosophy and raison d’être of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), an alliance through which 30 countries in Europe and North America commit to respond with their joint military forces in the event of an external attack on one of them. .

In other words, NATO defines its nature as defensive. But some countries see this as a threat to their security.

Russia, which used this argument to justify a military invasion, is the clearest example, but not the only one.
