(AP) — NATO leaders have declared that China poses a constant security challenge and is working to undermine global order. And they say they’re worried about how fast the Chinese are developing nuclear missiles.

In a summit statement in Brussels, the NATO leaders said on Monday that China’s goals and “assertive behavior present systemic challenges to the rules-based international order and to areas relevant to alliance security.”

The statement came a day after U.S. President Joe Biden reaffirmed America’s commitment to the NATO alliance that has been beleaguered during the presidency of Donald Trump.
