NATO straining relations
Lavrov has said that NATO is not limited to European countries only. It was announced at the Madrid Conference of NATO in June 2022 that the military bloc is a promise made to the whole world, especially in relation to the Asia-Pacific region. It is clear from this that NATO is trying to strain the relations between India and China. His war cry is related to the security of the Euro-Atlantic and Indo-Pacific region. According to him, it has nothing to do with him.
Weakening Indo-Pacific region cooperation
Since 1990, Russia is committed to the undivided security of the NATO Council and the Organization for Security and Co-operation (OSCE). The meaning of this word is equal security for every country and not to decide its own security at the cost of another country. According to Lavrov, now this whole principle has been given a different meaning and its direct meaning has been linked to the interests of NATO. It also includes the Indo-Pacific region. According to Lavrov, the Indo-Pacific region is the block that has been built against Russia and China. Its purpose is to ruin the decades-old system and end the ongoing mutual cooperation between the countries.
attack on japan
He said that NATO countries are now engaged in preparing their military bloc. The biggest example of this is AUKUS which is a separate bloc in Asia which includes the US and the UK as well as Australia. Lavrov has reprimanded Japan as well as NATO. According to him, Japan is also under pressure to join AUKUS. Lavrov referred to the recent visit of Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida to the US. He said that it is certain that Japan is also being militarised. For this reason, Japan is now changing its constitution.
