A diplomat in Brussels said that members of the NATO military-political bloc are closely watching the growing tension between Washington and Beijing against the backdrop of a likely visit by Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taipei. At the same time, the alliance has not yet had an impact on the conflict, the source said. “The Allies are closely monitoring the situation,” the source said. At the same time, the Western politician recalled that during the meeting of leaders of the association in Madrid, officials considered China to be a systemic competitor to NATO. According to the source of the agency, Europe and the States are ready to confront threats together.
