The NATO summit in Madrid is underway, with the leaders of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and South Korea attending together for the first time. It’s a sign NATO recognises the importance of the strategic situation in the Asia Pacific, and while the focus might be on the war in Ukraine, China is set to feature heavily on the agenda. Dominique Fraser, a research associate at the Asia Society Policy Institute, tells The World this is the most important NATO summit yet for the Asia Pacific.
