State Secretary Blinken offers a speech from Brussels after the NATO assembly

Undersecretary of State Antony Blinken will post remarks from Brussels, Belgium, following consultations with NATO allies.

Blinken will discuss a wide range of topics – including climate change, the increased need for allies and partners, and an increasingly assertive China.

Blinken’s speech comes after tensions between the US, the European Union and China have increased in recent weeks. He is expected to underscore the need for continued partnership with China but reject China’s coercive practices.

On Monday, the US, European Union and Canada imposed sanctions on Chinese officials for violating human rights against the Uyghur Muslim population in Xinjiang.
