On May 3, 2023, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has plans of opening a liaison office in Japan in 2024, the alliance’s first office in Asia.
Dave DeCamp of Antiwar.com noted that NATO has been pivoting to Asia in recent years and has “named China a ‘systemic challenge’ in its 2022 Strategic Concept.” As part of its China containment strategy, the military alliance is tightening cooperation with Asian countries. .
Per a Nikkei report, the liaison office’s purpose in Japan is to “allow the military alliance to conduct periodic consultations with Japan and key partners in the region, such as South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand as China emerges as a new challenge, alongside its traditional focus on Russia.”
