In addition, a new strategic concept of the alliance will be presented. According to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the bloc no longer considers Russia a partner. “We will declare [at the summit] that Russia is no longer a partner, but a threat to our security, peace and stability,” he said in response to a question about the attitude towards Russia. The concept will also include China, which Stoltenberg called “a challenge to our interests, our values and our security.”
